Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “Joy.”

“The festival of Sukkot, which comes after the Days of Awe, is a time of reconciliation and joy.

The Midrash (Leviticus Rabbah 30:2) likens holding the Lulav to a triumphal parade, in which we proclaim our certainty that we have been vindicated before God.”

–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
