Collection
Have you ever seen a sukkah on a camel, or a sukkah on top of another sukkah? Neot Kedumim, the Biblical Landscape Reserve in Israel, attempts to recreate the physical setting of the Bible and enable its visitors to see life as it was lived by our ancestors thousands of years ago. This collection features highlights from the park’s special Sukkot Exhibit, which depicts the many varieties of sukkot that appear in the Mishnah. We’ve also created activities for students to engage in based on these unique sukkot. We’re grateful to Neot Kedumim for providing us with these images and supporting our work.
