Israelis start building sukkahs ahead of Sukkot holiday
After the end of the Yom Kippur fast, Jews from across Israel begin construction on their sukkah ahead of the Sukkot holiday, which begins Wednesday night. Some of Ynet's readers shared their sukkah with us.

After the end of the Yom Kippur fast on Saturday night, many Jews across Israel began building their sukkah ahead of the holiday of Sukkot, which begins Wednesday evening.

 

 

Some Ynet's readers have sent us photos of them hard at work with their families building the sukkah. Show off your sukkah in the comments below!

Meanwhile, the traditional markets selling the four species opened their doors, offering the lulav, hadass, aravah and etrog.

Those seeking kosher lulavs can find them for as cheap as NIS 20, but if you're looking for the nicer looking ones—it's going to cost you NIS 200 or higher.

The same is true for the other species, particularly for the etrog, that could go for over NIS 1,000. The cleaner, more blemish-free the etrog, the more expensive it becomes.
