Sukkot (Hebrew: סוכות), meaning Tabernacles, is the autumnal 'foot festival' in which Jews are commanded to leave their permanent houses and to dwell in booths for seven days. The idea behind this is to remember that the Israelites lived in booths in the Wilderness for forty years. Additionally, when the Temple stood in Jerusalem, this was a pilgrimage holiday to celebrate the harvest.
Tabernacles are typically built out of wood or sheet metal. They have a roof made of a natural product such as leaves or palm branches. Through these, stars can be seen at night. The Succah must be built of certain dimensions (not too low or too high) and should have three or four walls.
On Succot, it is customary for Jewish men to buy a set of the four kinds/species comprising of a lulav (a palm branch), an etrog (a citron), a hadassim (myrtle), and an aravot (willows).
