Jews from all around the world came together to celebrate Sukkot in Jerusalem.
"Secular and religious people are coming together," a participant of the dancing, Daniel Katz said. "The energy is electric, the consciousness is electric, the music is overwhelming, people let go and they come together and dance."
Another man from Canada described the atmosphere, "You just feel sukkos in the air. Nowhere in the world can you find it like in Israel."
Sukkot is a biblical Jewish holiday. When there was a Jewish Temple, Sukkot was one of the three yearly festivals when Jews would make a pilgrimage to Jerusalem Temple.
The holiday marks the end of the harvest season and commemorates the Jewish the Exodus from Egypt.
