Occupying a prominent position in the heart of Central London's business and legal district, the Sukkah is located in a pedestrianised area close to Fleet Street and Chancery Lane.

This is the first time a Sukkah has been constructed in public space in this part of the City. The project is a partnership between Chabad Lubavitch and a number of leading firms based in the area. It has also been supported by some generous individuals. Construction began in the week before Sukkot and has now been completed. 

The Sukkah is located centrally in New Street Square, EC4. It will be open on the first day (13 Oct) of Sukkot from 2.30-4.30pm and throughout the intermediary days (17,18,19 Oct) of Sukkot from 8am-6pm. 100_1510.JPG

Rabbi Bentzi Sudak of Chabad Lubavitch UK said, "We are looking forward to welcoming many hundreds of people into the Sukkah during this joyous festival. It has been a pleasure to work together with local Jewish partners, all who share a passion and excitement for this fantastic project".
