Special To The Jewish Week

According to the book of Numbers, for 40 years Moses and the 603,550 men (not to mention women, children and other hangers-on), wandered the Sinai Desert, homeless, erecting temporary huts — sukkahs — on their way from Egypt to Israel. Some say that number is awfully high, and can’t possibly be accurate, but numbers are hard to pin down.
