To understand the full significance of the Festival of Sukkot, we have to go back and see how it develops, over the course of the Torah’s narrative. We’ll look at it in four layers here.
During Sukkot, it is traditional to invite seven exalted guests into our Sukkah: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Aaron, Joseph, and David. These seven guests represent the leaders of the Jewish people. In the Hasidic tradition, seven Rabbinic leaders are also symbolically invited into the Sukkah, each representing different values. IKAR encourages you to invite some social justice heroes into your Sukkah or home as well. Click here to read out our guests.
