Israel in Your Own Backyard

Jews around the world are currently celebrating Sukkot, the holiday that has them spending time in humble shelters (sukkahs) that remind them of the rustic dwellings the Israelites lived in when they wandered the desert for 40 years – and especially of the God who provided everything for them, and does the same for us today.

If you’d like to check out the sukkah experience, a Chicago photographer has come up with a creative way to transport you to one right in the Holy City.

The Panoramic Sukkah is a creation by Andy “Eliyahu” Alpern, a photographer specializing in 360-degree images. Thanks to his sukkahs, which consist of panoramic photos of famous places in Israel, celebrants can easily pretend that they are actually at notable Jerusalem sites such as the Western Wall at night or smack in the middle of Mahane Yehuda market.
