HYANNIS – The Cape Cod Synagogue is constructing a “Sukkah” tomorrow morning in the backyard of the Synagogue as part of the Jewish Holiday “Sukkot.”

Sukkot is a biblical Jewish Holiday that is celebrated following Yom Kippur and has great historical meaning.

A Sukkah is a temporary outdoor booth with an open top, where synagogue members have their meals, pray and have symbols for the holiday.

“It’s a wonderful time of year and it’s always a great pleasure dining outdoors, being with friends and some special prayers and celebrations,” said Cape Cod Synagogue Board of Trustees member Dr. Marc Silverstein.

The Sukkah will be set up starting at 9 a.m. at the Synagogue and the festivities begin tomorrow evening.

Sukkot will be celebrated for seven days but those who are more orthodox or conservative Jewish, may celebrate for eight days.
