PROVO, Utah — To honor Jewish holidays this week, the BYU football program invited a Kosher food truck to feed the team on Tuesday, October 3.
Sukkot is a week-long Jewish holiday that celebrates the fall harvest. It is one of the most joyful festivals in Judaism, meant to bring families, friends and communities together. The holiday also commemorates the 40 years that Jews spent in the desert after escaping slavery in Egypt.
Jake Retzlaff, a quarterback on the BYU football team, is a member of the Jewish faith.

Thanks to @UtahRabbi we managed to get a kosher food truck, and a Sukkah on wheels down to the middle of BYU's Football Field for a grand Sukkot Celebration with the whole football team!
