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.
