Set in a busy pedestrian square in between Fleet Street and Holborn, the 50sq metre stylish Sukkah is specifically designed and decorated to fit in with the local environment. For the duration of Sukkot it was a big talking point for the many thousands of people who work close to and pass through the square.  

During the three days of programmes and events over 1000 people came through the Sukkah doors to shake the lulav, eat some food or just find out more about the festival of Sukkot. 

32.JPGA variety of events took place included Shiurim, a Wine Tasting evening, mincha services and open lunches each day including a gourmet lunch sponsored by Deloitte. 

The New Street Square Sukkah is a partnership project between Chabad Lubavitch and a number of local city firms including Bolt Partners, Deloitte, Freshfields, Herbert Smith, Mishcon De Reya, Speechly Bircham and Taylor Wessing. 

Rabbi Bentzi Sudak, Chief Executive of Chabad Lubavitch said, "Each year the numbers who pass through our Sukkah continue to grow as does the support we receive from local firms. Once again it has been a fantastic success and we're already looking forward to next year". 37.JPG
