What to bring into the Sukkah? (Halacha a day)

The Torah commands us to live in the Sukkah for the duration of Sukkot. 7 days in Eretz Yisrael, 8 days in the Diaspora.
One should move into the Sukkah and bring along one’s creature comforts; the comfortable chairs and favorite dishes.

The Mitzvah of Sukkah is one of the few where the Torah explicitly gives us a reason: “Sit in the Sukkah for seven days in order that your descendants should be aware that the Yidden dwelled in Sukkot during their journey out of Egypt.

Sukkot could be referring to the Clouds of  Glory that surrounded and protected the entire Jewish encampment (as per R’ Eliezer) or actual Sukkah-huts that individual families lived in (as per R’ Akiva).

One should keep these “reasons” in mind when fulfilling the Mitzvah of Sukkah.

One should treat the Sukkah with respect and not bring in items one wouldn’t tolerate at a Shabbat table.
