Orthodox Jewish men on "Pedi-Sukkahs" in New York. A sukkah is a temporary structure — reminiscent of those the Israelites dwelt in as they wandered 40 years in the desert – that Jews are required to build for the festival of Sukkot, which began on Wednesday evening (Sept. 18) and will last for eight days. Chabad–Lubavitch, a group of devoutly religious Jews, put sukkahs on bikes to bring them to Jews who might not otherwise  have a chance to spend time in one.
