The joyous festival of Sukkot celebrates the forty years the Jewish people wandered through the desert after leaving Egypt. During this time, they lived in temporary shelters, called "Sukkahs".
The holiday lasts seven days, beginning five days after Yom Kippur. During the first two days, no work is permitted.
A major symbol of this festive holiday is the "Sukkah", the temporary dwelling in which the Jewish people lived while wandering through the desert. Traditional Jewish tradition requires that the Sukkah be built, decorated and lived in during the week of Sukkot . It is used to eat and sleep in.
