      Kfar Saba Home to Israel's First Solar Sukkah


      Mayor Yehuda Ben-Hamo of Kfar Saba invited everyone, Sunday, to come to his city during the upcoming Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) holiday to experience the first sukkah booth in Israel to be lit with solar energy.

      The sukkah will be erected in the Kfar Saba municipal park, surrounded by a special array of solar panels which will collect energy from the sun during the daylight hours. The energy will be used during the dark hours to power energy-saving LED lights which are not toxic and contribute to environmental protection.
