Can You Build a Sukkah on a Boat or on Top of a Camel?

Our friends at Israel21c tell us about a unique sukkah display going on now in Israel along the Sukkah Trail at Israel’s Neot Kedumim biblical nature reserve. The event will celebrate the upcoming Jewish holiday, Sukkot, or the Feast of Tabernacles.

Beginning Monday, Jews will inhabit sukkah, or temporary shelters that remind them of the huts the Israelites lived in during their 40 years of wandering in the desert. Learn more here.

Did you ever see a sukkah on a boat or on a camel? How about a treetop sukkah or a double-decker sukkah?

The sages of the Talmud and Mishna discussed at least 50 crazy kinds of sukkot – the outdoor huts in which people dine (and sometimes sleep) during the weeklong Jewish harvest and thanksgiving festival of Sukkot (Tabernacles), celebrated this year from nightfall September 23 through October 1.

You can see and explore 20 of these theoretical life-size sukkot constructed along the Sukkah Trail at Israel’s Neot Kedumim biblical nature reserve. It’s the only such display anywhere in the world.
