The Day Of Atonement is almost done, which means it's almost time for the much more joyous Festival of Sukkot, the Jewish celebration of booths and booth-like structures (and also God's kindness, among other things). The week-long holiday doesn't begin until this Wednesday night, but orthodox Jews around the city have been preparing all week.

Photographer Vladimir Badikov captured the photos above from around Williamsburg this week, showing people starting to build their sukkahs, shopping for traditional holiday foods (including lulav and etrog), and walking around the neighborhood during the High Holy Days.

You can see a video with some of Badikov's previous work below as well.
