material things. On Succot,
we are required to leave the
comforts of home, the artifi-
cial and complicated devices
on which we come to rely,
and enter a simple booth. Ev-
erything in our lives and in
the world is growing more
and more complex, so that we
have inevitably come to feel
that our pleasures must be
found in the same direction.
We are to give up those
elaborate possessions that we
normally rely upon and enter
a frail and simple dwelling.
Judaism is advising us that
we should shift our attention
from the accumulation of
things to the perfection of
self. Authentic satisfaction is
experienced not in what we
own, but what we achieve.
The reason for the obser-
vance of Succot, is that God
protected the Children of Is-
rael as they moved forward
on their journey in the
wilderness for 40 years, until
they reached the Promised
Land. We enter the succah to
remind us of that journey and
to be instructed about the
great saga of our people.
Thus, Succot teaches us the
secret of happiness in a sec-
ond form. Vital and authentic
faith is an adventure. Reli-
gious living is dramatic and
eventful. Every human life is
a journey, in which we seek a
promised land relying upon
God's providence and His
blessing. If we perceived His
presence more clearly, how
much more glorious and stir-
ring would be our under-
standing of our own exist-
ence. The person of faith may
wrestle with his soul as Jacob
wrestled with the angel. He
may struggle with life itself

but he ultimately prevails,
because in the intensity of
his conviction, he draws on
his strength to win.
The third secret embedded
in the observance of Succot is
contained- in this verse:
"Thou shalt rejoice in thy fes-
tival; thou and thy son and
daughter, and thy servant,
the stranger within the gates,
and the Levites."
As we bring joy to others,
we discover the joy in our
own lives. When you help the
needy, the underprivileged,
your own life acquires new
meaning and worth. George
Bernard Shaw wrote: "We
have no more right to con-
sume happiness without pro-
ducing it than to consume
wealth without producing it."
We go astray in our quest
for happiness because we
think of it as something due
to us. Some people we know
are forever complaining, full
of taynes, or grievances
against the world because it
does not minister to them.
The next time you feel this
mood descending on you, try
this prescription: Think of
someone whom you can help.
Is there someone whose lonel-
iness you can relieve by a
visit? Is there a hospital
patient you can cheer with a
call? Is there an overdue note
of appreciation you can write
to someone who helped you
over a difficult time?
When you are unhappy, try
doing something for some-
body, preferably something
involving some inconvenience
and time. Life will wear a
brighter face when you do be-
cause, as you give happiness,
it will come back and bless
you.

S

uccot occurs quite late
this year, when tem-
peratures can be very
chilly. It is no wonder that
some people will consider

spending the holiday in a
warmer region.
A heated succah in the
Catskills, a succah by the \,
ocean in Miami, or in Israel,
are some of the alternatives
available to the Succot
traveler.
In the Catskills there will
be a succah on the premises
