This reproduction tile is of a man holding a lulav (palm branch) while walking by a succah on the Succot holiday. Replicated from a woodcut print from a minhagim (Jewish customs) book, originally published by Isaac De Cordova in 1923 in Amsterdam. The minhagim book, the first of which was published in 1593, served to illustrate the many important religious practices and customs of Jewish life.
A succah is built to fulfill the biblical commandment of erecting and dwelling in a booth for seven days in remembrance of our ancestors wanderings through the wilderness. Succot, also known as the Harvest Festival is the feast of the ingathering at the end of the agricultural season.
