Some 120 meters (390 feet) of iron, 1,000 wooden boards and 350 palm branches are just a few of the materials used to build the world's biggest sukkah, which will be presented during the Global Sukkot Festival in Netanya and Ashdod on October 2-3 and can host as many as 1,000 people.

 

This year's festival, initiated by the Information and Diaspora Ministry in collaboration with Beit Hatfutsot – the Museum of the Jewish People and the Netanya and Ashdod municipalities, will be held at Winter Lake Park in Netanya and Ben-Gurion Park in Ashdod.

 

The world's largest area of sukkot will be built in both cities, with dozens of sukkot representing Jewish communities from all around the world under the huge sukkah measuring 528 square meters (5,680 square feet) in size.
