Sukkos
 
Sukkos is a weeklong holiday that comes five days after Yom Kippur.  Sukkos commemorates the miraculous protection G‑d provided for the children of Israel when they left Egypt.  Sukkos occurs at the time of harvest when great joy is already present.  We celebrate Sukkot by dwelling in a foliage-covered booth (known as a sukkah) and by taking the “Four Kinds” (arba minim), four special species of vegetation.
