Sukkot is a Marriage


On Sukkot our desires [“to dwell in the House of the Lord” (Psalm 27:4)] are answered. In effect, God is the bridegroom and we, the Jewish people, are the bride called upon to enter the bridegroom’s home. The seven days we sit inside the sukkah correspond to the seven days that a marriage is celebrated. ~ R’ Shlomo Riskin
