Stock Photography of Sukkoth

Sukkot or Feast of the Tabernacles Sometimes spelled Sukkot Succos, Succoth
is a Jewish Holiday celebrated on the 15th day of the month of Tishrei (late September to late October). It is one of the three biblical pilgrim festivals when it was traditional for Jews to visit the Temple in Jerusalem.

The holiday lasts seven days. The word Sukkot is the plural of the Hebrew word sukkah, meaning booth or hut. The sukka is reminiscent of the type of the fragile dwellings in which the ancient Israelites dwelt during their 40 years of wandering in the desert after the Exodus from Egypt. Throughout the holiday the sukkah becomes the living area of the house, and all meals are eaten in it. Some believers even sleep in the sukkah On each day of the holiday, members of the household recite a blessing over the Four Spices
