Sukkot-Feast of Tabernacles (Booths)

Question: When is Sukkot or the Feast of Tabernacles? YOU SHOULD CELEBRATE SUKKOT ON THE 15TH DAY OF THE 7TH MONTH UNTIL THE 22nd DAY OF THE 7th MONTH.

Leviticus 23:33 And יהוה spoke to Moses saying, 34 Speak to the Children of Israel saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month will be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to ליהוה. 41 And you will keep אתו it (him) a feast to ליהוה for seven days in the year. It will be a statute forever in all your generations: in the seventh month you will celebrate אתו it (him). C-MATS

 Question: What commandments were given for Sukkot?

 YOU MUST REST ON THE FIRST DAY OF SUKKOT. 23:35

YOU MUST NOT WORK ON THE FIRST DAY OF SUKKOT. 23:35

YOU MUST REST ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF SUKKOT. 23:36

YOU MUST NOT WORK ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF SUKKOT. 23:36

Leviticus 23:35 On the first day will be a sacred convocation: you will do no ordinary work. 36 Seven days you will offer an offering made by fire to ליהוה: on the eighth day will be a sacred convocation for you; and you will offer an offering made by fire to ליהוה: it is a solemn assembly; and you will do no ordinary work. 37 These are the feasts of יהוה, which you will proclaim אתם them to be sacred convocations, to offer an offering made by fire to ליהוה, a burnt offering, a grain offering, a sacrifice and drink offerings, each on its own day: Prophecy Fulfilled-Lev.23:36-37 The Drink-offering: “If any man thirst.” John 19:31-36. 38 Beside the Sabbaths of יהוה and besides your gifts and all your vows and all your freewill offerings, which you give to ליהוה. 39 Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in את־ the fruit of the land, you will keep את־ a feast (Sukkot) to יהוה for seven days: on the first day will be a Sabbath and on the eighth day will be a Sabbath. C-MATS

Question: Why does יהוה call an assembly on the eighth day? יהוה says to Israel, “I have called you to an assembly to remain with Me.” This is like a king who invited his sons to feast with him for a certain number of days, and when the time came for them to leave, he said: “My sons! Please, stay with me just one more day, for it is difficult for me to part with you!” Similarly, after the seven days of Sukkot, יהוה “detains” Israel for one extra sacred day.  Only on this eighth day is work prohibited, and not on the preceding weekdays of the Festival, when such work, which, if postponed, would cause a monetary loss, is permitted. Chumash

YOU MUST TAKE CHOICE FRUITS, PALM BRANCHES, AND OTHER BRANCHES BEFORE יהוה DURING SUKKOT.  Put the best of your local fruit on your table for the feast. Cover your sukkah with palm branches if available or other branches from native trees in your area. Wave your branches in celebration and rejoice during the seven days of the feast.

Leviticus 23:40 And you will take on the first day choice fruits, branches of palm trees, thick tree branches and intertwined willow branches from the brook; and you will rejoice before יהוה your Elohim seven days. C-MATS
