The merit of the Succah


“'You shall sit in the succah for seven days' - This is parallel to the seven clouds of glory [which protected the Jews in the desert, on their way from Egypt to Israel].

"Also, the seven days when the Jews sit in the succah earn them seven chuppot: Cloud, smoke, light, fire, flame, glory of the Shechinah and the [messianic] succah of the Leviathan."

(Baal haTurim to Vayyikra 23:42)

Have a great day,
