Festival of Succot – Sunday night 13 October to Monday night 21 Oct

Look out for all the succahs (temporary foliage-covered and decorated booths) which will be springing up on balconies and in communal gardens throughout the area.

The seven day festival (8 days outside Israel) celebrates the gathering of the harvest and commemorates the miraculous protection G‑d provided for the children of Israel when they left Egypt and the time when we complete and re-start the reading of the Torah (5 books of the Old Testament). It is a joyful celebration, shops, restaurants and schools will be closed on Monday 14th and 21st October and there is no public transportation either on those days.  Public transport will also cease around 3pm on Sunday 13th and Sunday 20th October.    CHAG SAMEACH

Recommended Sukkot Days Out in Israel

Sukkot is a week-long Jewish festival which falls shortly after Yom Kippur.

Sukkot in Israel is a time of vacation – the first and last days are national holidays when most businesses will be closed (similar to a regular Shabbat), whilst the intermediary days are normal business days except for the fact that many Israelis take the time off work. The result is that there are lots of activities for Sukkot across Israel so it is a great time to be visiting. The Sukkot festival in 2014 falls between 8 to 15 October 2014 although the events also take place slightly before and after these dates.
