During Sukkot, we get a taste of what it would be like not
to have a home. Just as our Sukkah is open to the world, so we must not
return to our homes, closed off to the needs of others. May we be
inspired through our symbolic homelessness to renew our commitment to work for
a time when no one will be compelled to live outdoors for lack of a home.
Rabbi Mordecai z”l wrote – "The Sukkah is the symbol of protest against the
injustices and inequities of current civilization, and the need for upholding
standards of righteousness which our civilization should seek to achieve.”
