Sukkot, a Hebrew word meaning “booths” or “huts,” refers to the Jewish festival of giving thanks for the fall harvest. It is one of the three pilgrimage festivals, along with Passover and Shavuot that were originally agricultural celebrations.  Its significance, however, goes beyond being a holiday of thanksgiving for the harvest. It is the only festival associated with an explicit commandment to rejoice. Sukkot is celebrated five days after Yom Kippur on the 15th of the month of Tishrei, and is marked by several distinct traditions.
