There’s an autumnal harvest holiday approaching, and no, this isn’t an early Thanksgiving blog post. We’re talking about SUKKOT! Sukkot is a Jewish agricultural festival that was originally considered a thanksgiving for the fruit harvest. This week-long holiday is celebrated by assembling a temporary, outdoor hut called a sukkah to use as a space for meals or sleeping under the stars.

Sukkot begins Friday, October 2 in the evening and concludes on Friday, October 7. While we might not be able to be together in person, we’ll be together in spirit with couples from across our community to celebrate Sukkot HMI-style! Below is a collection of resources our team put together to help navigate Sukkot in 2020. Whether you’re able to celebrate outside in a traditional sukkah or you’re inside under a pillow fort, we have some great tips and ideas to bring this fall festival to life for you.

Share how you’re celebrating Sukkot with us by tagging @honeymoonisrael on your Instagram and Facebook posts.
