2 million enjoy the outdoors for Succot holiday week

From Succot through Simhat Torah, nearly 2 million people headed to the country’s national parks, nature reserves and forests to picnic and hike outdoors during the holiday week.

The Israel Nature and Parks Authority reported more than a million visitors to its parks and nature reserves, while Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael-Jewish National Fund said that about 850,000 people came to the organization’s parks and forests – all in all a slight decrease from last year’s numbers. Although happy to find Israelis enjoying nature during their time off from work, parks officials lamented that all too often, the travelers left their fun behind them, in the form of garbage on the nation’s land.
