sukkotSukkot or the Feast of Tabernacles commemorates the period when the Israelites wandered in the wilderness and slept in tabernacles. Sukkot is a harvest festival.  In ancient times it was the duty of all Israelites to go up to the Temple in Jerusalem.  They would bring with them baskets of fruit and other delicacies.  We commemorate this by eating similar kinds of food.  This recipe for a date and nut pudding, originates from Eastern Europe.
