A “Sukkah-Truck” is taking to Oporto’s streets this week to help residents celebrate the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, or “Festival of Huts”. It is a pick-up truck bearing a wooden, greenery-topped hut known as a Sukkah.
The sukkah is organized by Rabbi Haim and Hannah Chettrit the Chabad Shluchim of Oporto who direct the Jewish student center together with the Jewish community of Oporto. For this reason, the sukkah sits on the back of a truck that is conveniently parked near the university where many Jewish students study.
This year the Sukkah-mobile concept arrived in Portugal. The Oporto Jewish Community also created a SukkahBike. The new options allow anyone, regardless of where they are, to observe the Holiday of Lulav and Etrog and eat in a strictly kosher Sukkah.
The new SukkahTruck and SukkahBike are open to everybody. Everyone is invited to hop on board to shake the Lulav and Etrog or to grab a bite in the Sukkah.
