Sukkot is an amazing time of year to be in Jerusalem, and that's where we are this week. With most schools closed for the entire week, the streets and parks are teeming with children and their parents attending the special events that have been planned to keep them in a happy holiday mood.
During this Sukkot week we'll be running a series of blog posts to share this mood with you and give you a taste of Jerusalem.
Today we'll start with a few minutes that we captured on the first intermediate day of Sukkot at an evening street fair in the German Colony.
Every year the art fair, with street theater performances, exhibits, music concerts, central stages, art workshops, food stands, caricaturists, outdoor musicians, public dances, exhibitions and more is held all along Derech Beit Lechem.
You'll be with us as we walk past vendors of clothing, housewares, and gifts, food stands, and groups of performers including singers and giant papier mache puppets.
