The holiday of Sukkot is synonymous with joy. In Israel, the merriment of the “season of rejoicing” is palpable –with the celebrations literally being brought on to the street.
Parks and museums hold special events, with live music, craft booths and food trucks in abundance. The traditional festivities of “Simchat Beit HaShoeivah”, which take place during the intermediate celebratory days, creates street parties which go on into the wee hours of the night. On the “restricted” days, there’s music in the air from the thousands of families singing in the sukkahs, which line the pathway and yards, and which adorn balconies and occupy parking lots.
As one of the most vibrant holidays in the country, it’s no wonder that it’s the most popular tourist seasons as well. While there is no other experience like the one of sukkot in Israel, there is one element that many tourists crave – the intimacy of gathering with family and friends in their very own sukkah.
Dwelling in the sukkah, for many observant and traditional Jews, is a quintessential activity of Sukkot which can lose its magic when conducted in a spiritless dining room style sukkah found in hotels. While renting an apartment is an option, the logistics of preparing it without actually being in the country can become daunting – and not exactly the ideal way to start a vacation.
