(Booth), the sixth tractate in the order Mo‘ed
, takes its name from the hut in which Jews are obligated to reside during the festival of Sukkot. In five chapters, the treatise discusses the laws of the main rituals associated with the holiday, including dwelling in booths and taking the four species (citron, palm frond, myrtle, and willow) – both of which are practiced to this day – as well as ceremonies performed during Temple times, like the water libation and the laying of the willow branches on the Altar. It ends with vivid descriptions of the festivities surrounding the water drawing and various other Temple matters.
