Succah as Exile under Divine Protection


"The mitzvah of Succah is to leave permanent dwellings and shelter in all ways beneath His wings, on HaShem’s oversight. This itself is the clarification which comes through exile, to shelter in HaShem through all of the oppression and trouble, so that we will know that everything comes from HaShem’s direction."

(Rav Tzadok haKohen of Lublin, Pri Tzaddik, Devarim, Chag Succot #8)

Moadim l'Simchah,
