Sukkot

Sukkot [the Feast of Tabernacles] lasts from the 14-22 of Tishrei. The origins are to be found in Vayikra [Leviticus] Ch.23, v.34, where the people are commanded to sit in booths for seven days as a reminder of the booths in which the People of Israel dwelt in the desert.

Observance

Eat In the Sukkah: The holiday of Sukkot commemorates G-d’s kindness to the Jewish people while in the desert at the time of the Exodus; we mark this kindness by eating in a Sukkah, a hut covered with branches. The Four Kinds: One of the special mitzvoth of Sukkot is to recite a blessing on “The Four Kinds,” a citron, a palm branch, three myrtle twigs and two willow branches. We hold them close together, we recite a blessing over them and, as is customary, wave them to all the four winds and upward and downward. The Midrash tells us that the Four Kinds represent the various types and personalities that comprise the community of Israel, whose intrinsic unity we emphasize on Sukkot.
