Sukkot took place during lockdown in 2020, and so Temple Beth Israel organised a booking system to visit their Sukkah: "Following the ancient ritual of Ushpizin, we invite you to bring your decorations, leave a note, shake the Lulav and smell the Etrog. Help us make our sukkah beautiful and filled with community spirit."
