Episode 182 The Sukkah of David

Amos gives us a famous phrase, central to the celebration of a Jewish holiday today. But to what was Amos actually referring?

In this episode, Rabbi Soloveichik discusses the rabbinic regulations governing the construction of the sukkah, the temporary hut, that Jews are commanded to build on the holiday of Sukkot.

You can see a fascinating exhibit of different sukkot, illustrating examples given in rabbinic literature, here. You can see more illustrations of different sukkot here.
