A Movable Feast: Sukkahs from Around the WorldSeptember 25, 2003-February 14, 2004
Location: Weisbord Exhibition Pavilion
Curator: Rachel Sarfati
Every year on the festival of Sukkot, Jews all over the world build a sukkah by their home. These temporary structures recall the booths in which the Tribes of Israel lived during their journey through the desert to the Promised Land. This diverse collection of sukkahs, built in communities from East and West, were exhibited under one roof for the first time. The display highlighted both their common features and the unique character of each one.
