Rabbi Didy Waks will be taking to the streets to spread awareness of a seven-day Jewish holiday next week — and he’ll be doing it on a “Sukkah on Wheels.”
The holiday is Sukkot, a biblically mandated harvest festival that also commemorates the Israelites’ exodus from Egypt. One of the traditional ways Sukkot is celebrated is by eating in a sukkah, a temporary structure covered with vegetation and “open to the skies.”
The Sukkah on Wheels, or “pedi-Sukkah,” is attached to a three-wheeled cycle so it can be moved around the area. When it stops, a light snack will be available inside.
