About the Program

Throughout the week, visit the Skirball sukkah—installed on the courtyard behind the main lobby—to enjoy your lunch or to spend time with your family. 

The weeklong Jewish festival of Sukkot celebrates the fall harvest season and the custom of welcoming guests to one’s home. Celebrations during this seven-day holiday recall the temporary desert dwellings, called sukkot, that the ancient Israelites constructed and lived in as they traveled to the land of Israel. Today, Jews around the world build and invite family and friends into their sukkot in the spirit of thanksgiving.
