Sukkos, considered one of the happiest times in the Jewish calendar. Looking for an authentic Sukka? you can hear hammering and drilling throughout the Jewish Quarter within an hour or two of the fast of Yom Kippur ending. Many of Jerusalem’s residents can be found jumping at the opportunity to begin preparing for the holiday of Succos, by building their Sukkos, the temporary structures in which Jews dwell for the seven days of the holiday. The last day, although attached to Sukkot, is a different holiday, namely Simchat Torah, the day that celebrates the completion of the annual cycle the reading of the Torah. It is commemorated with much singing and dancing at synagogues – and even on the streets – with Torah scrolls, throughout all of Israel. This year Sukkos begins before sundown September 23 and it ends after sundown on September 30. Sukkot is one of the most vibrant times of year in Jerusalem. Here is an overview of the annual events that take place in Jerusalem over Sukkot. You are more than welcome to come and join in the festivities!
