Guest: Jeffrey R. Chadwick, PhD, Professor of Religion, Archaeology and Near Eastern Studies, BYU Today marks the 5th day of the major Jewish holiday Sukkot, or the Feast of Tabernacles. Sukkot is named after the makeshift huts Jews are instructed to build and spend time in during this week-long celebration. It’s a joyous occasion that narrates an interesting story of faith and humble beginnings.
