Sukkot – Details

The first day of Sukkot is kept like the Sabbath. Therefore, servile work is not done this day. The rest of the days during the Sukkot period are days when work is permitted.

We celebrate Sukkot by dwelling or at least eating in a foliage-covered booth (known as a sukkah). For seven days and nights, we eat all our meals in the sukkah and otherwise regard it as our home.

The goal is to spend as much time as possible in the sukkah, at the very minimum eating all meals in the sukkah, particularly the festive meals on the first two nights of the holiday, when we must eat at least an olive-sized piece of bread or mezonot (grain-based food) in the sukkah.
