On the Seder Night, we say הא לחמא עניא - this is the bread our ancestors ate in Egypt.

The Torah says we should sit in Succos as G-d made Succos in Exodus (Lev 23.43).

לְמַעַן יֵדְעוּ דֹרֹתֵיכֶם כִּי בַסֻּכּוֹת הוֹשַׁבְתִּי אֶת־בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּהוֹצִיאִי אוֹתָם מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם אֲנִי ה"א׃

in order that future generations may know that I made the Israelite people live in booths when I brought them out of the land of Egypt, I the LORD your God.

Why don't we remind that fact on Succos, sitting in Succah?

  • @DoubleAA Interesting, you're saying it's a part of the Aggadah? It seems to preface it IMHO. כל דכפין is just a call. We do invite אושפיזין into Succah also. – Al Berko Sep 8 '19 at 5:33
  • There's no mitzva of sippur on sukkot or the last 6.5 days of pesach. It might be nice to help people remember what they're supposed to, but I don't know why you'd expect a formal liturgy. – Double AA Sep 8 '19 at 13:56
