327 - WORKING ON THE FIRST DAY OF SUKKOTH


Leviticus 23:34-35 -- 34 “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: 'The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to the LORD. 35 On the first day there shall be a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it.’”

“Festivals are appointed for rejoicing and for such pleasant gathering as people generally need. They also promote the good feeling that people should have to each other in their social and political relations. There is thus a cause for the appointment of the special days as festivals.”*

* Moreh Nebuchim III, 43
