Sukkot : Booths : Feast of Tabernacles

We are currently in the middle of the 8 days of Sukkot or Feast of Tabernacles.  These are the 8 holy days in which the Children of Israel were to "dwell in booths" commemorating their 40 years in the wilderness with the LORD.

Modern observant Jews build their sukkot of various materials.  Here are typical ones.

Read about the Biblical and rabbinic rules for kosher sukkot (booths)here.

Meanwhile, at NYU (where my son got his masters), a group decided to hold a competition designing new/old more interesting sukkot.    They called the contest :Sukkah City NYC 2010 . 

They received over 600 entries and the results ranged from humorous to ethereal.

Now they have completed a documentary film on the project.  You can watch a trailer  here.
