Maritime Aquarium hosts first public sukkah in area for Jewish holiday

More about the sukkah and its meaning.

 Tonight at sundown marks the beginning of the Jewish  holiday, sukkot, or  Feast of the Tabernacle. For 7 to 8 days, Jews traditionally eat and rest in a temporary shelter called a sukkah. The first public sukkah in Fairfield County is already up at the Maritime Center in Norwalk.
