What is a Sukkah?

Question: What is a sukkah?

Answer: A sukkah is a booth roofed with tree branches, plant stems or leaves. The Torah requires us to live in a sukkah on the seven days (outside Israel: eight days) of the holiday of Sukkos, which begins on the 15th day of Tishrei (five days after Yom Kippur); see Lev. 23:42-43. The Christian name for this holiday is Tabernacles; a “tabernacle” is a booth.
