Question: Why do we celebrate the Feast of Sukkot? The Festival of Sukkot commemorates the shelter that יהוה provided the Israelite people in the Wilderness, and an essential part of the Sukkot service is to recall that shelter. Sukkot responds to the joy of knowing that your sins were forgiven during Yom Kippur and recalling the miraculous provision and care of יהוה after delivering us from the bondage of Egypt. Sukkot is a time to rejoice in יהוה‘s concern for us and be grateful for the blessing of the fruit harvest. Chumash
