A Hasidic man rests in his Sukkah in Williamsburg.  During the Sukkos Holliday every family builds and decorates a wooden Sukkah on the street. Orthodox practice calls for men to take all their meals in the Sukkah for a week. The Sukkah symbolizes the clouds that shielded their ancestors during their exodus.
