of the Homowack Hotel.
Guests can use the indoor
swimming pool and ice skat-
ing rinks, and there are
many more activities to keep
one busy.
A succah will be part of the
World International Hotel in
Atlantic City. Lectures,
entertainment, an indoor
pool, and nearby casinos are
available to guests.
An oceanfront succah will
be built at the Crown Hotel
in Miami Beach. The hotel
features a health spa, olym-
p i c pool, therapeutic
whirlpool and sauna.
All the above hotels offer
strictly kosher food and reli-
gious services during the
holidays.
Nothing can be as exciting
as Succot in Israel, where the
whole country celebrates the
festival. For a touch of the
Catskills in Israel, you can
enjoy Succot by the Sea of
Galilee at Kinar, a vacation
village run by residents of
the Golan.
A strictly kosher resort,
Kinar opened only several
months ago. Horseback riding
and aerobic dancing are of-
fered here along with lectures
on the Talmud, a synagogue
and a mikvah.
The most meaningful place
for celebrating Succot and
Simchat Torah in Israel is, of
course, Jerusalem. Succot is,
after all, one of the three pil-
grimage festivals (the other
two being Passover and
Shavuot). In Temple times
the pilgrimage to Jerusalem
was a central part of celeb-
rating these three festivals.
Today, again, thousands of
pilgrims come to the city.
A contemporary Jerusalem
custom is the annual Succot
`open house' at the president-
ial mansion. It is the time
when President Chaim Her-
zog, and his wife, greet each
member of the visiting public
with a handshake.
Special package deals for
Succot and Simchat Torah in
Israel are available both from
New York and from Toronto.
Should you decide to celeb-
rate Succot in New York this
year, you can join one of two
walking tours and visit some
of that city's great succahs.
Sponsored by the 92nd
Street Y, the tours will take
place Wednesday and Thurs-
day. The Wednesday tour
covers Manhattan's Upper
West Side. The Thursday
tour is in Brooklyn's Crown
Heights and includes a fes-
tive dinner.
