Sukkot,Lulav & Etrog 

        Sukkot comes just five days following Yom Kippur.The timing is not accidental,only after we have reached a new level of purity and atonement on Yom Kippur, we can now fulfill the special Mitzvah of Simkha (happiness & Joy)  of Hag HaSukkot,that commemorates how protective "Clouds of Glory"surrounded for forty years the Jewish people in their wandering in the desert after leaving we too leave the safety and security of our houses and put ourselves under the direct protection of the Almighty .His protection,in the final analysis, is the only one that matters. 

        The  Sukkah is the only Mitzvah in which we are completely surrounded by the Mitzvah itself,envelopped as it were, in the divine presence,while eating our meals,sleeping,and studying Torah. 

        The other well- known Mitzvah which pertains to Sukkot is for everyone to  take the Arba-ah Meanim (four elements) Lulav(palm branch) surrounded by three Hadass(myrtle branches) on the right side and two Araba(willows branches) on the left side and  an Etrog,to say the blessing on them,which is in the prayer book, every day of Sukkot except on  Shabbat,and as usual to say the blessing of Shehekheyanu on the first day,This year we do it the second day ,since the first day fall on Shabbat. 

        The Sukkot festival is a time that we pray for universal peace to the whole world .During the period of Beit Hamikdash(the Temple).the sukkot festival offerings included seventy oxen ,corresponding to the seventy nations,in prayer for peace and harmony among all nations of the world.Hag Sameah.
