In the Torah, we are commanded to give a tenth of all our “increase” at the Feasts of Unleavened Bread, Shavuot, and Sukkot. Take tree boughs, fruit, branches, and other plants, and use them to make your sukkah, to decorate, and to wave as you dance and rejoice before YHVH. Rejoice all seven days! It is a command to rejoice during this.
