Jewish Serving Dishes

This Month's Film: Ushpizin

According to my research, it seems that there are no special Sukkot serving dishes per se. However, the theme of Sukkot is the abundance of the harvest, and dishes in autumn colors with natural motifs and patterns would be in keeping with the spirit of the festival. One important thing to keep in mind is that pots and pans are prohibited in the sukkah, so all foods must be transferred to serving dishes before bringing them to the table. Therefore it is important to choose foods and serving dishes that facilitate this rule.
