21 Favorite Sukkot in Jerusalem

I love Sukkot in Jerusalem, Israel.

Whether it is one large sukka

sukka in courtyard of Jewish Museum

 tucked away in a courtyard,

building with sukka built on porches

or many standing on the porches of new buildings.

How many can you count hereת

Building with many succahs on porches Jerusalem Israel

and here, seven or eight?

Some are small and inconspicuous,

some on roof tops.

sukkah in Israel Museum

The sukka in the Israel Museum next to the children’s wing

is simple, and with branches for supports and on top.

Simplest roof top sukkah

This rooftop sukka wins the prize for

the least elaborate and inexpensive sukka.

A pizza shop put up a white sukka on the sidewalk,

while the King David Hotel

has one large colorful sukka on its veranda.

Outside on King David Street

there is this plain white one.

All you had to do was look up,

to see these on King David Street.

On the porches of the Waldorf Astoria Residences

one sukka even had a bed standing by.

The Jerusalem Waldorf Astoria Hotel sukka in the atrium,

is always a favorite.

Mamilla also has its share of sukkot.

of this view from inside the Citadel Hotel.

Its main sukkot were huge,

but if you look more closely

you can see this wooden sukka perched

view of sukkot from Citadel Hotel Jerusalem

on a ledge high above these below.

Sukkahs on top of Citadel Hotel

The Citadel also has dining tables in the sukka on top.

Thousands of visitors are here for the holidays,

Private sukka on top of Inbal Hotel Jerusalem Israel

and the Inbal Hotel also has private sukkot above,

and the elegant atrium sukka below,

and more along the side of the hotel as well.

sukkah in Liberty Bell Park Jerusalem Israel

I also like the sukka at the neighboring Liberty Bell Park.

Every year the Beit Hanasi, the Israel President’s residence

 has an open sukka day,

when the public is invited inside.

This year the time was extended to 4:00 pm,

but I was late.

As on Yom Kippur at the conclusion of the Neilah Service,

Beit Hanasi sukkah open house closed

the gates were closed.

This was as close as I could get to the presidential sukka this year.


I was in Hevron today.

So instead of my annual Presidential sukka photo

Sukka in Hebron Caves of Patriarchs and Matriarchs

here is the sukka of Avraham Avinu,

Hebron Caves of Patriarchs sukka

where Jewish voices

and sounds of prayer and song for Sukkot

were heard both inside and outside the burial places

of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs.


I almost forgot!

Our family sukka is pretty special too!

The multitude of holiday events happening this week

will have to wait for next time,

meanwhile, hope you are enjoying.
