The families of Israel gathered in autumn to give thanks for the harvest or ingathering and the blessings they enjoyed during their forty years in the wilderness. For this joyous festival called "The Feast of the Tabernacles" or "Sukkot", they built temporary Sukkah, or booths and dined and lived outdoors to commemorate this great chapter in their history.
Stories about the Shepherds of Israel, feasts, games and family love are part of the celebration as well as special prayers. Here is one website that shares information about Sukkot:
