Reviving an Ancient Tradition in Judaism's Holiest Place
The Jewish festival of Sukkot will soon be getting underway, just a few days after Yom Kippur, capping off the festive Hebrew month of Tishrei.
Sukkot commemorates God's protection of the Jewish people during their 40 year stint wandering the desert, following the dramatic Exodus from Egypt. It is also a harvest festival and a celebration of the Land of Israel and its produce, among other things.
