NTU Faith invite you to visit their Sukkah on the City Campus, and make a donation of non-perishable food to help those in need.

Sukkot is known as the Festival of Tabernacles or Festival of Booths. Once a year for seven days the Jewish community leave their houses and move to a small hut (Sukkah). This is done to remember the forty years the Jewish nation spent in the wilderness, living as migrants without comfortable homes.

The walls of the Sukkah can be made of any material, but it’s roof must be made of organic material such as tree branches or palm fronds. You must be able to see the stars from the Sukkah as a reminder of our place in the universe.

The Sukkah is not only a relevant symbol for Jews, but for all people, reminding us of those who still live without a roof over their heads, in poverty, and growing up without having their basic needs met.

NTU Faith invites you to leave non-perishable food as a donation for those who need it, in the box inside the booth.

For more information about Sukkah email NTU Jewish chaplain Rabbi Dvir Baris: dvir@mychaplaincy.co.uk
