Sukkot Holiday : “The Sukkah Speaks” Exhibition

It’s been five years since I last celebrated Sukkot in Israel. Back then it was the beginning of my “Chinese fascination” and on that year I added a few Chinese decorations to create what I declared was Israel’s first Chinese Sukkah. This year had its own special decorations from Hong Kong but what was even more special is that I assisted my architect father in turning our entire balcony into a really lovely Sukkah by getting my hands a bit dirty with wood and nails. It was a treat.

Lots to write about regarding the festivities of Sukkot in Israel and there’s probably alot to explain to those not familiar with this somewhat odd holiday, but of all things I’ll just share one little exhibition that took place at Beit Avichai, a couple of minutes walk from my parents’ house, called “The Sukkah Speaks” where artists were invited to use the Sukkah model to offer a new insight into a topic of their choice. Being a bit bored with the traditional model of the Sukkah, I found many of the miniature Sukkah models quite refreshing and worth sharing with the world.

Overall very interesting and quite creative. 

 

Though I’m not much of a traditional holidays person I must say I had a blast with the familia, together with my sister’s wedding this had to be one of the most international holidays ever. On our holiday meals, apart from than the family guests I could count : 3 Brits, a Canadian, a Taiwanese, 3 mainland Chinese, an Israeli living in Taiwan, 2 local Israeli friends, an American, a French, a Turkish, and a German. Makes one realize that national/cultural barriers matter very little when it’s friends getting together.
