Stop by the Skirball’s specially installed sukkah—located on the Kopple Terrace, between the main lobby and the Noah’s Ark galleries—to enjoy your purchases from Zeidler’s Cart or to just spend a quiet moment of thanks.
The Jewish festival of Sukkot celebrates the fall harvest season and the custom of welcoming guests to one’s home. The seven-day holiday commemorates the desert dwellings, called sukkot, that were built by the Israelites as they journeyed to the land of Israel. Today, Jews around the world invite family and friends into their sukkah in the spirit of thanksgiving. The roof of the sukkah is left open to reveal the majesty of creation.

From Sir Ian McKellen to Archbishop Desmond Tutu, everyone is raving about the magic of The Magic Flute, performed in English by South Africa’s unforgettable Isango Ensemble! Mozart’s masterpiece about love and redemption is boldly re-imagined South African style in this exhilarating, life-affirming opera that is “for everyone aged eight to eighty” (Sunday Telegraph). Winner of the Olivier Award for “Best Musical Revival in London” and co-produced by Eric Abraham, Isango’s The Magic Flute is a dizzying array of marimbas, swirling dancers, and brightly patterned costumes. The twenty singers, many of who come from Cape Town’s surrounding townships, pack enough vocal energy to raise the roof, and leave you with “a rare sense of life-enhancing joy” (Sunday Times, UK).
