The festival of Sukkot occurs from the 15th-22nd of Tishrei, which is falls usually around September or October. It is the Jewish harvest festival and reminds Jewish people of the Israelites’ wandering in the desert for 40 years after receiving the Ten Commandments. During this time the Jewish people lived in temporary shelters or booths made from branches. Sukkot is the Hebrew word for ‘booths.’ Today Jewish people all over the world build sukkahs outside their homes to remember how God protected them and cared for them both in the wilderness and today. Download this resource to help you think about the importance of Home during the festival of Sukkot.
