Photo of the week – Sukkot in Jerusalem

Harvest holiday brings Israelis and visitors into the great outdoors.


School’s out during the seven-day Sukkot holiday (also known as the Feast of Tabernacles) as Israelis — and thousands of tourists – celebrate outdoors in decorated temporary “huts” and enjoy family activities offered across the country.

This photo by Yonatan Sindel of Flash90 shows visitors walking through the giant sukkah built on the grounds of Safra Square, the seat of the Jerusalem municipality.
