Celebration Doesn’t Have To Be Stationary

Written by

Interested in celebrating the fall harvest in style, but can’t find a good free-standing structure with a palm-leaf roof nearby? Chabad Lubavitch has conveniently set up a super-mobile sukkah on Broadway between 113th and 114th streets for your religious observance needs. For those unfamiliar with Jewish High Holidays, Sukkot is a weeklong festival commemorating the bounties of the previous year—kind of like Jewish Thanksgiving. It started last Wednesday at sunset, so you still have a few days to celebrate, whether in the back of a U-Haul pickup or on solid ground.

Who said ancient religious observance can't be convenient?

Also, Hillel’s celebrating the Festival of Booths with their own Sukkot themed version of the MP3 Experiment. L’Chaim!
