The large number of animals offered each year is especially notable at the Feast of Tabernacles (199 animals in eight days). Besides animals, according to one estimate, the Israelites offered annually over a ton of flour and over 1,000 bottles of oil and wine.

The Feast of Tabernacle (ingathering, Booth Sukkot) held on 15 Tishri is remember in symbolic and colourful ways. The children of Israel relied entirely on the provision of YHWH Almighty with all their clothes and shoes did not wear out (Deut 29:5 and they and their flocks did not lack for food or water (Neh. 9:15,20-21)

In the present we see the sukkoth in John 1:14; 14:23b; 17:23; Hebrews 8:1, 2, 10 ; . Hebrews 13:5 Jeremiah 31:33 (Prophetic) and God send His Holy Spirit to dwell in the heart of His people.

The three pilgrim feast are Pesach, Shavuot and Sukkoth are the major feast of God's appointed time (Moed). In the Torah, HaShem gave a series of instruction. Part of their duty was to sacrifice a total of 70 Bulls during the Feast of Tabernacle. The Jewish Rabbis said that the 70 bulls represent the 70 nation that descended from Noach, the world. The Hebraic Scholars said these were sacrificed for the shalom and well being of the Goyim that the God of Avraham, Isaac and Jacob. Perhaps the some of the Jews people may not aware of this. Today the God fearing Gentiles believer who believe in the Messiah of Yisrael have been grafted in to Olive branch and have become adopted Ben Avraham By faith(Galatians 3:29)
