  • Bringing peace to the world
  • Drawing Inner and Surrounding Light from Binah and Zeir Anpin
  • Inner Light: the level of Light we can handle
  • Surrounding Light: our potential
  • The Light of the Sukkah: The Light of the Holy Temple
  • Eating and sleeping in the Sukkah: drawing our mercy
  • The lulav and etrog: drawing our Inner Light of Mercy from Zeir Anpin to Malchut
  • Three myrtle branches on the right correspond to Chesed, Gevurah and Tiferet
  • Two willow branches on the left correspond to Netzach and Hod
  • One date palm branch in the center corresponds to Yesod
  • The etrog corresponds to Malchut
  • Tasting represents our actions and smelling represents our heart (giving desires)
  • Myrtle: smell but no taste: desire to give without giving
  • Willow: no smell or taste: no desire to give without giving
  • Date palm: taste but no smell: performing giving actions without the heart
  • The etrog: taste and smell: performing giving actions with our heart
  • Walking around the Torah with the lulav and etrog draws our Surrounding Light
  • Building and decorating the Sukkah

Lesson Description
