Spanning seven days, Sukkot elegantly bridges the tangible and the ethereal. But what symbolism does it carry?
The Sukkah, a transient and fragile edifice, transcends mere tradition. It’s a painstakingly crafted spiritual conduit meant to capture and envelop the celestial luminescence of the Divine, which blankets the universe.
Rav Berg, an esteemed scholar and spiritual luminary, shared a novel interpretation of Sukkot.
