Three new tiny pop-up eating establishments are to appear at Heathrow Airport this month.

They are not a trendy addition to Terminal 5’s Gordon Ramsay restaurant and Caviar Bar. This modern take on a traditional Jewish eating place are pop-up Succahs, which will appear at Terminals 4, 5, and one to share between 1 and 3.

For many years observant Jews using the airport during the festival who wished to eat in a Succah had to travel to Ealing.

Now, thanks to Rabbi Hershi Vogel of Ealing United Synagogue, who is Jewish Chaplain at the airport, there will be not just one but three Succahs.

“For the first time in its history, Succot will be available at the West London airport,” said Rabbi Vogel.
