1st January 1970
Jewish Quarters Attractions

At the first sight, this building looks like an ordinary wooden building, which managed to survive the test of time. However, this is one of the oldest residential houses in Kėdainiai, built at the end of the 18th century. A small wooden structure attached to the building is the sukkah – one of the most important attributes of sukkot, that is celebrated at the end of September. This feast has two meanings. It marks the end of harvest time, but at the same time, this feast is celebrated to commemorate the liberation of the Jewish nation from slavery in Egypt and their journey to the Holy Land.
