Of all the holy days in the Jewish calendar, only Succos is called "the season of our joy."

Why is this week marked by an explosion of jubilation? What does it recall from the past? What does it portend for the future? What is the significance of the humble, fragile succah-booth? What is the lesson of the Four Species?

This volume contains a kaleidoscope of observances, laws, insights, and prayers. It sheds light on Succos, the festival that has a dual role in Jewish religious life: it is the culmination of the Days of Awe and also the concluding festival in the annual pilgrimage cycle.

The book contains four enlightening parts:

  • An Overview of Succos, containing a broad Hashkafah / philosophical discussion of the holiday and its role in the life of the individual Jew and the entire nation.
  • Insights and Background, presenting a fascinating and delightful collection of ideas, stories, sayings, and interpretations regarding the festival, the booth, the Four Species, and much more.
  • The Laws of Succos, an authoritative digest of the relevant Halachah literature so that scholar and layman can review the laws of the festival observances.
  • The Prayers of the succah-booth and the Four Species, with an original translation and an anthologized commentary drawn from two millenia of Rabbinic literature.

The sum of these four parts is a magnificent contribution to the understanding and appreciation of a joyous, meaningful, inspiring festival. The Book of Succos is a bountiful tribute to the eternal relevance of the Jewish heritage. It is a treasure worthy of every holiday table and library shelf.
