    Sukkot, or Feast of  Tabernacles, is a Biblical holiday celebrated in late September to late  October.  The holiday lasts seven days.  The Sukkah is a walled  structure covered with plant material - built for the celebration - and  is intended to be a reminiscence of the type of dwelling in which the  Israelites stayed during their 40 years of travel in the desert after  the exodus from slavery in Egypt.  Throughout the holiday, meals are  eaten inside the Sukkah and many sleep there as well.  On each day of  the holiday, members of the household recite a blessing over the lulav  and etrog (four species).  The four species include the lulav (a ripe  green, closed frond from a date palm tree), the hadass (boughs with  leaves from the myrtle tree), the aravah (branches with leaves from the  willow tree) and the etrog (the fruit of a citron tree.) -- Paula Nelson  (
