Sukkah for Sukkot

The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk is making special accommodations for Jewish guests celebrating the holiday of Sukkot Sept. 23-30.

Sukkot begins the fifth day after Yom Kippur. As the thanksgiving for the harvest, it’s traditionally such a joyful celebration that it is commonly referred to in Jewish prayer and literature as “the Season of Rejoicing” and “the Festival of Ingathering.”

During Sukkot, a temporary hut – a sukkah – is erected to commemorate the divine providence of the Israelites being sustained in the desert wilderness. It is tradition to eat meals and otherwise spend time in the sukkah.

The Maritime Aquarium will erect a 12-by-20-foot sukkah on its riverfront courtyard.
