The MItzvah Gang: A Sukkot Story

The Jewish High Holidays come in a family pack.  Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are the serious, reserved older siblings who grapple with issues of life and death, sin and repentance in a somber way.

Sukkot is the baby of the family who deals with important matters of faith and unity with laughter, feasts, and song. Sukkot drives home its message with several props: the sukkah, a temporary booth or hut, the lulav, a palm frond bound together with myrtle and willow branches, and the etrog, a citron fruit that looks like a bumpy lemon. Sukkot engages every sense in celebration. We touch the lulav, smell the etrog, see the sukkah decorations, and taste the crisp cool autumn in every bite of every meal savored in a sukkah. But what does it all mean and why do we do it? Read more about the wonderful holiday of Sukkot, by clicking on the articles below.
