The Magen David Series - Sukkot
The word sukkot means “booths,” and refers to the temporary dwellings that we are commanded to live in during this holy festival. While inside, we recall the period of the Nation of Israel wandering during their exodus from bondage in Egypt.
Durring the festival of Sukkot, we take the Four Species (arba minim) and wave them in six directions (east, south, west, north, up, and down). This symbolizes the fact that G-d is everywhere.
