Positive Mitzvah 168: Living in the Sukkah during the Holiday of Sukkot
Leviticus 23:42 "You shall dwell in (the) Sukkah seven days"

We are commanded to live in the Sukkah throughout the holiday of Sukkot, considering the Sukkah our temporary home.

In 1976, amidst multiple litigations, the multimillionaire, eccentric recluse, Howard Hughes, died. The Rebbe spoke about him: He felt he could trust no one, for they were all only after his money. For the last twenty years of his life he could only hide from the entire world, without a friend, without any sort of enjoyment of life.

There was a man who had everything, and everything he had only locked him in. He was like all of us. We hold the keys to our freedom, but we use them to lock ourselves in.
