The Jewish residents at Allingham House enjoyed celebrating sukkot, this week, with some wine and cake in the sukkah in our garden. Sukkot is an seven-day harvest holiday that arrives during the Hebrew month of Tishrei. It starts four days after Yom Kippur and is followed by Shmini Atzeret and Simchat Torah. Sukkot is also known as the Festival of Booths and the Feast of Tabernacles. The sukkah is a temporary dwelling built during the Jewish holiday of Sukkot and is often decorated with autumn fruit and vegetables, which are tied to strings and then hung around the sukkah.
