The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk will be celebrating the Jewish festival of Sukkot from Monday, October 10 through Sunday, October 16. During this week-long holiday that simultaneously celebrates the Fall harvest and recalls the Israelites’ 40-year journey through the desert, families and communities build sukkahs, temporary booths or huts in which it is customary to share meals, entertain, and rejoice.

With the help of a local Chabad, the Aquarium is erecting its own sukkah, which will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., daily. “We are excited to partner with Beth Israel Chabad of Westport/Norwalk CT and Rabbi Yehoshua Hecht,” said Amy Diaz, Director of Marketing and Communications at the Aquarium. “We look forward to gathering with, and celebrating with, the Jewish community.”

Added Rabbi Yehoshua Hecht, “Families, children, and adults will be able to enjoy their snacks and lunch in this outdoor sukkah. There is even an onsite washing station for bread. Everyone will feel welcome at The Maritime Aquarium.”

The Aquarium is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Ticket reservations in advance are strongly encouraged. To reserve your tickets, and learn more about the Aquarium, visit
