A question about jewish festivals...


I am ashamed to admit my ignorance, but this question has been bugging me since we moved into this flat (in a orthodox jewish part of Zurich), ie 7 years.

Which jewish festival do these shelters represent? Someone, please put me out of my ignorant misery!

In other news, it is definitely autumn - weather has changing, leaves are changing and I saw the first roast chestnut stands this weekend!

Sukkot

the celebration of booths, that does not look like the ones they set up around here, but then there may be some cultural differences.

I am fine. We are all having Herbstferien at the moment and are taking it easy - well apart from today when we had to get up at 6 am to go to Europapark ;-)
