Happy Sukkot From Israel! ✡ “Rejoice Before Hashem” – ISRAEL365

Now on the first day you shall take for yourselves the foliage of beautiful trees, palm branches and boughs of leafy trees and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before Hashem your God for seven days.

וּלְקַחְתֶּם לָכֶם בַּיּוֹם הָרִאשׁוֹן פְּרִי עֵץ הָדָר כַּפֹּת תְּמָרִים וַעֲנַף עֵץ עָבֹת וְעַרְבֵי נָחַל וּשְׂמַחְתֶּם לִפְנֵי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם שִׁבְעַת יָמִים

ויקרא כג:מ

ul-kakh-TEM la-KHEM ba-YOM ha-ri-SHON p’-REE aytz ha-DAR ka-POT t’-ma-REEM va-a-NAF aytz a-VOT v’-ar-VAY NA-khal us-makh-TEM lif-NAY ah-do-NAI e-lo-hay-KHEM shiv-AT ya-MEEM

Today’s Israel Inspiration

One of the unique commandments of the holiday of Sukkot is the taking of the four species, all of whose source is a beautiful tree. They are the fruit of a citron tree (called ‘Etrog’), a ripe, green, closed frond from a date palm tree (called ‘Lulav’), boughs with leaves from the myrtle tree (called ‘Hadass’), and branches with leaves from the willow tree (called ‘Aravah’). The Sages tell us that the four species symbolize four different personality types. By taking the different species and holding them together, we emphasize the importance of coming together and uniting in the service of God, teaching us that working as a whole is the way which God intended. What better way to show our love and unity with our fellow than making the holiday truly joyous for those in need?

Sukkot: Approaching Tragedy With Joy

by: Rabbi Dr. Nathan Lopes Cardozo
Instead of becoming depressed and losing faith in life after the great tragedies which befall us, we should continue to approach life with the optimistic note which is conveyed to us by the beautiful interior of the Sukkah.

The Footsteps of God: Finding Gilgal

Watch as Aaron Lipkin and Zac Waller uncover the secrets of six footprint formations—all dated from the early Israelite period and all found in central Israel. What were they used for? Why are they all located in the Jordan Valley and eastern foothills of Samaria? Why did the ancient Hebrews go to so much trouble to build these round monuments in the shape of a footprint?
