Well…. They are entries in an avant garde  Sukkah design competition in Union Square. Yup. That’s right.

(A Sukkah is a little hut with a lot of specifications that Jews eat in for 8 days a year to commemorate leaving Eygpt…also has something to do with harvest and the holiday started today…) See more entries and read about it here, cause its pretty cool.

  1. i like number 2. it reminds me of a chestnut bur.
    Happy Sukkot! (is that what should be said? gentile, here….)

      Yea, that works! We also just say “Happy Holiday” a lot.

      Sukkot is one of the more esoteric jewish holidays… strange, and not too many observe it.

  2. Oh, I read about those in The Year of Living Biblically. But A.J. Jacob’s was, um, less impressive… These are beautiful!

      Yea… his was sub-par. That’s what most of the traditional ones look like though.
