Emor: Chapter 37

The holiday of Sukkot


We learn that whoever is in the secret of the Faith dwells in a Sukkah or booth, and that one must offer a daily sacrifice on the seven days of Sukkot. Offerings are made to the other nations because God wants them to be friends with Yisrael.

[Verse 275] Rabbi Elazar talks about the clouds that went with Yisrael through the wilderness. We hear about the invitation for the guests of Faith to enter the Sukkah, and how important it is to give a portion of the meal to the poor.

[Verse 282B] We are told that it is a commandment to take a Lulav on the day of Sukkot.
