Yom Kippur and Sukkot: Atonement and harvest

Image 1 of 15


Ultra-Orthodox Jewish men check a myrtle branch to determine if it is ritually acceptable as one of the four items used as a symbol on the Jewish holiday of Sukkot in the orthodox Jewish neighborhood of Mea Shearim in Jerusalem, Sept. 16, 2013. The holiday commemorates the Israelites 40 years of wandering in the desert and a decorated hut is erected outside religious households as a sign of temporary shelter.
