Workers are hoping to complete the new enlarged entrance to the President’s Residence in time for Sukkot.

As he does every year, President Reuven Rivlin will hold an open house on one of the intermediate days of the holiday. This year that will be on Monday, October 9. The general public will be invited to the President’s sukka for the opportunity to inspect high-quality Israeli fruits and vegetables, including new strains, and to see other examples of Israel’s achievements. There will also be entertainment.

Renovation work on the President’s Residence, including replacement of infrastructure, began more than a year ago. The work has proved to be somewhat of a safety hazard to pedestrians in the neighborhood, who have been forced to step into the road in the path of oncoming traffic. Fortunately, there have been no casualties.

The new entrance will enable faster processing of visitors to large-scale events at the residence, ensuring they spend less time in the grueling summer sun and can quickly gain protection from wind and rain in winter.
