Sukkot in Jerusalem 2023

Sukkot in Jerusalem is one of the most special times to visit the holy city. This is one of the busiest times in Jerusalem for events, when kids are off school and thousands of tourists head to the city from around the world. This year’s Sukkot festival is from September 29th – October 6th, 2023. Most of the events for Sukkot in Jerusalem take place throughout the intermediate days of the holiday.
