Sukkot lasts a total of eight days .It is bookended by two days of complete rest. Instruction for building the temporary dwelling is given .The building and decorating of the dwelling are one of the extremely enjoyable activities of the holiday. It commemorates our living in temporary dwellings in the wilderness after G-D brought us out of Egypt. He choose to camp with us in the Mishkan also known as the Tent of Meeting. We are to remember this time period and all G-D did for Israel throughout the time we spent in the wilderness.
