The soldiers will be able to eat and pray outdoors in a safe space due to coronavirus restrictions.

Sukkot starts after sundown on Oct. 2 and lasts until nightfall on Oct. 9.

In Israel, it is immediately followed by Simchat Torah, which celebrates the end of the annual cycle of Torah readings and marks the beginning of a new one.
