      "October 3rd, Sukkot".

      Today, October 3rd, 2023, the Jewish holiday of Sukkot will be observed starting tonight. Sukkot is celebrated for a week in commemoration of the pilgrimage to the first temple. To all those observing, have a good yontif!

      Sukkot (Hebrew), meaning Tabernacles, is the autumnal 'foot festival' in which Jews are commanded to leave their permanent houses and to dwell in booths for seven days. The idea behind this is to remember that the Israelites lived in booths in the Wilderness for forty years. Additionally, when the Temple stood in Jerusalem, this was a pilgrimage holiday to celebrate the harvest.

      Tabernacles are typically built out of wood or sheet metal. They have a roof made of a natural product such as leaves or palm branches. Through these, stars can be seen at night. The Succah must be built of certain dimensions (not too low or too high) and should have three or four walls.

      On Succot, it is customary for Jewish men to buy a set of the four kinds/species comprising of a lulav (a palm branch), an etrog (a citron), a hadassim (myrtle), and an aravot (willows).

      Check out this Sukkah on Fifth Avenue in front of the New York Public Library.

      Talking Re: "October 3rd, Sukkot".

      Thank you for letting us know about this event/custom.

      I love to learn about all kinds of different cultural/religious customs and practices. I always felt that the more we know and understand about each other, the better the world can be as we grow closer and closer.

      May the events and practices of Sukkot bring you some peace and harmony as you honor the events that led to it.

      Respectful hugs,

      Van

      I used to love celebrating Sukkot. The weather was always nice, and it always smelled good. It's been many years since I've had the chance to celebrate. Thanks for the post.
