Huge crowds attend World Sukkot Festival

24.11.2011

Over 14,500 people visited the Beit Hatfutsot Sukkah during the three-day “Sukkot World Festival: Celebrating the Jewish Experience” in Netanya. The Beit Hatfutsot Sukkah included fifty computer stations sponsored by MyHeritage for family roots research; a special “You are part of the story” Sukkah in which visitors entered their personal details to be part of a large communal Star of David mosaic; as well as children’s activities from the A-B-See-Do exhibition.

 

The event, which was a great success, was a joint venture of Beit Hatfutsot, the Ministry of Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs and the Netanya Municipality.
