Sukkot is one of three pilgrimage festivals of the Jewish year, when ancient Israelites brought sacrifices to the Temple in Jerusalem. It commemorates the biblical tale of Hebrews, liberated from Egyptian bondage, wandering in the wilderness for forty years before entering the promise land of Canaan. During Sukkot, Jews eat and celebrate in a temporary dwelling called a sukkah. They offer prayers of thanks, while shaking a lulav and etrog, a palm frond bound with myrtle and willow, and lemon-like fruit.
