The commandment to dwell in booths (Leviticus 23:39-43) reminds us of those who are homeless or who must live involuntarily in temporary housing. Sukkot affords us the opportunity to raise awareness of these issues and to take action to help alleviate homelessness and to help procure stable, adequate and affordable permanent housing for those in need.
