|…and you shall rejoice before the Lord your God seven days. ~Leviticus 23:40|
Sukkot is also known as the Feast of Tabernacles or the Feast of Booths. God had delivered His people out of Egypt. While Moses was on the mountain receiving the law, the people made a golden calf to worship. God forgave them, but they had to wander about the desert 40 years before coming to the promised land.
During that time, they lived in booths, or temporary houses, as they traveled through the desert. God commands them to keep a yearly feast to celebrate this time, and He even instructs them to live in booths for seven days.
