Jerusalem to build massive candy sukkah

Tuesday, September 25, 2007 |  by Staff Writer

The Jerusalem Municipality is building a huge sukkah entirely out of candy for the upcoming week-long Sukkot holiday, Ha'aretz reported on Tuesday.

Two tons of candy and candy-shaped ornaments are being brought into the capital to construct the 10,000-square-foot sukkah, which will occupy most of downtown's Safra Square.

The giant candy sukkah is scheduled to open on Wednesday, and will be the venue for various cultural events during the biblical holiday. Free candy and sweets will be offered to visitors.
