Followers around the world over will build Sukkahs, or huts, to symbolize the temporary dwellings that the Israelites lived in while wandering the desert after the exodus from Egypt.
The Jewish holiday of Sukkot gets underway at sundown Wednesday, and Jews around the world will build sukkahs.
A sukkah is a temporary hut crafted to celebrate the Jewish holiday Sukkot. The structures evoke both farmers’ temporary field houses and Israelites’ transient homes during 40 years of desert wanderings.
