If popular corners in Miami have drive-through Starbucks, then why can’t popular synagogues have drive-through sukkahs?

That’s what one temple in Pinecrest is promoting for the first time this fall during the Jewish harvest festival of Sukkot.

So, if you can only spare a minute for your prayers, why not make a quick stop at Temple Bet Shira’s drive-through sukkah.

According to the Miami Herald, Jews can visit the sukkah starting Friday at sundown at the onset of the Jewish holiday of Sukkot. The "McSukkah" will be up for a week, synagogue officials said.

And just like Starbucks, everyone is welcome at this drive-through.

Meant to resemble places that the Jewish people visited in Biblical times, this sukkah is made of wooden beams, decorated with palm fronds and has an open view of the sky.
