To paraphrase someone who commented on this article on Ha’aretz’s website: with all of the poverty and other assorted tzuris in Jerusalem, this is what the municipality is spending its money on?!
Jerusalem municipality to erect sukkah made entirely of candy
By Haaretz Staff
The Jerusalem municipality and the Ariel municipal company are planning to build a sukkah made entirely of candy to mark the Jewish holiday of Sukkot later this week.
The sukkah will be built in Jerusalem’s Safra Square and will be named “HaSukkah-Rya”, a play on words meaning hard candy.
Two tons of candy and candy-shaped ornaments will be used in the construction of the 1,000 square meter sukkah. The lighting will be in the shape of candy and the walls will be covered with candy and bubble gum. Various sweets will be offered to guests free of charge.
The sukkah will be open to visitors starting on Wednesday. Cultural events and other attractions will be held in the sukkah throughout the holiday.
