You might have seen the "booths" or huts this, public ones in the street or private ones on balconies or in backyards, in which mane families take their meals this week. It's the Jewish fall festival of Sukkot, a kind of Thanksgiving for our homes, for everything that sustains us and that others did not have in the past or even today. (You can read the original blog on this here.)
The snapshops in this slideshow, some from Downtown Washington, but most of them from the DC suburbs, were taken by friends and clients of mine (and a couple of them I took myself). They're opening their makeshift homes for you -- welcome! And if you can contribute any pictures, from DC or elsewhere in the States or the world, I'd love to add them!
Happy Sukkot to all of you who celebrate!
