Israel - Sukkot
Known as the Feast of Tabernacles, this Biblical holiday held between September and October was initially held in gratitude for the fruit harvest, but was also a time of reflection about the Israelites 40-year exodus from slavery. To honor this momentous journey, Israelis build Sukkahs, temporary huts where the Jews dwelt during their flight from Egypt. The temporary structures represent the fragility of our existence and remind Jews to give thanks for their homes and their bodies.
