The Succah of faith
The Torah states
“In succot (booth)s you shall dwell for seven days all citizens of Israel shall dwell in booths. In order that your generations all know that I made the children of Israel dwell in booths when I took them out of the land of Egypt, I am the Lord your God.” (Leviticus 23, 42-43).
But surely it was only natural that the Children of Israel would construct some type of temporary shelters as they journeyed in the wilderness after the exodus from Egypt. But history is only part of the story, why does the Torah state that God made the Children of Israel dwell in them?
