Mishnayos Sukkah Perek 4 Mishnah 8

סוכה פרק ד׳ משנה ח׳


This mishna elaborates upon the first mishna in this chapter. The obligation to recite hallel and the mitzva of rejoicing on the Festival by sacrificing and eating the meat of peace-offerings are always for eight days. The mishna explains: How so? This teaches that a person is obligated in hallel, and in the mitzva of rejoicing, and in reverence for the last day of the Festival like he is for all the other days of the Festival. The mitzva of sukka is seven days. How does one fulfill this obligation for seven full days? When one finished eating on the seventh day, he should not dismantle his sukka immediately, because the obligation continues until the end of the day. However, he takes the vessels down from the sukka into the house from minḥa time and onward in deference to the last day of the Festival, when he will require the vessels in the house.

מפני כבוד יו"ט – so that it would appear as if he preparing it [for the place] where he will eat in it in the evening.

לא יתיר. אגד שלה לסתרה. דהא כל היום חובתה:

אבל מוריד. הוא ממנה הכלים נאים ומצעות נאות שהעלה לתוכה:

מפני כבוד יו״ט. שיראה כמכין לקראתו [למקום] שיסעוד בו הלילה:
