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.
