What is Sukkot

Sukkot is the Jewish Autumn festival. To celebrate our new year’s resolutions being kept in our home and in our life, we build a temporary garden shelter and eat our meals outside in it for seven days and nights known as a sukkah. The building and decorating of the sukkah is a fun family event. Spending time in the sukkah is meant to be a joyous time where we sing, dance and focus on the happiness our life enjoys because we are good people.

During Sukkot we also gather four items to represent the four personalities we encouter in life, a lemon, a palm frond, a myrtle branch and a willow branch and we wave them in all directions around us to represent the personalities we encounter and to remind ourselves to be good to everyone.

I have no idea why, but most Jewish people eat sushi during Sukkot. For this reason, I’ve included this and nine other great ideas to help you celebrate your Sukkot. Click here for my suggestions!

    The reason why Jews eat more sushi over Sukkot is because foods that contain the seven grains associated with the Land of Israel (wheat, barley, spelt, oat and three more) must be eaten in the Sukkah. Rice is not one of these grains – therefore (although it is good practice to eat and drink everything in the Sukkah) – one is not obligated to do so, making sushi a good choice if you do not have ready access to a Sukkah.
