GooglePlex Sukkah

Tonight is the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, you can learn more about it over here, part of the tradition is to eat meals in a temporary home known as a Sukkah. This is often challenging while at work, so some offices, when possible, build a Sukkah for the Jewish employees.

Google two years ago put up this Sukkah for the 'Jewglers,' Jewish Googlers, at the GooglePlex.

I found this photo on a story on how Google NYC is constructing, for the first time, two Sukkahs at the Google NYC office. The sukkahs won't be put on the street, no room for that in NYC, but rather on "one of the balconies."

Not only was the sukkah initiative given two-thumbs up, it sparked a trend across Google offices. This year, Google offices in Pittsburgh, Boston, Argentina, Dublin and the Mountain View global headquarters in California will all be pitching sukkahs, with the New York Jewgler team leading the way. The video-conference call system will allow Jewglers from one Google sukkah to see and talk with Jewglers in another Google sukkah.

Googlers, send me pictures via Google+.
