I didn’t know what Sukkot was, but I know much more now.  Sukkot-A-Palooza is a new infographic design from Mike Wirth and David Silverberg that tries to help explain the Jewish holiday of Sukkot to the rest of us.

Sometimes call the Jewish Thanksgiving, Sukkot, the Feast of Booths and Tabernacles, is a celebration of the harvest and autumnal season.  Families build a Sukkah, a basic walled structure, to eat, pray and sometimes even sleep in for seven days.

I’ll admit I still don’t really understand Sukkot, but I know way more than I did before.  How many people actually build Sukkahs?  I don’t recall ever seeing one before.  The design is very text-heavy, but it is very educational.

Thanks to Mike for sending in the link!
