Sukkoth, considered one of the happiest times in the Jewish calendar, is the first harvest festival of the year. Celebrated in the fall, the festival also commemorates the 40 years of wandering the Israelites underwent in the desert on their way to Canaan, the Promised Land. During the time of the Temple in Jerusalem, people came to Jerusalem on a pilgrimage (called an Aliyah le’regel – ascending by foot) for this festival with fruits and other gifts to offer as sacrifices in the Temple.
Marked with great festivities and fervor, Sukkoth is one of the best times to experience Jewish history and culture. In 2017 Sukkoth begins before sundown on October 4 and it ends after sundown on October 11. A number of events mark the Sukkoth holiday period, from plays and workshops to live concerts and experiential city tours.
