Glasgow’s Interfaith Sukkot

Succot in Glasgow

Aharon Soudry writes us from Scotland about how he helped organize an interfaith Sukkot experience for Glaswegians. Sukkot, (or Succot, as in the British English spelling) also known as the Feast of Tabernacles, is originally an agricultural festival of thanksgiving for the harvest.  An important Jewish observance, it is a seven day holiday.  During this period, observant Jews eat their meals in the Sukkah, a booth structure that is made of natural materials and is intended to remind people of the fragile homes in which the ancient Israelites lived during their 40 years of wandering in the desert after the Exodus from Egypt.
