A Beautiful Holiday in the Holy Land ✡ “Israel Dwells in Safety” – ISRAEL365

And Israel dwelleth in safety, the fountain of
Yaakov alone, in a land of corn and wine;
yea, his heavens drop down dew.

וַיִּשְׁכֹּן יִשְׂרָאֵל בֶּטַח בָּדָד עֵין יַעֲקֹב אֶל אֶרֶץ דָּגָן וְתִירוֹשׁ אַף שָׁמָיו יַעַרְפוּ טָל

דברים לג:כח

va-YISH-kon yis-ra-EL be-takh ba-dad ayn ya-a-KOV el e-retz da-gan v’-ti-ROSH afsha-MAV ya-ar-foo tal

Today’s Israel Inspiration

‘Sukkot,’ the Feast of Tabernacles, was the most joyous of the festivals worshiped in the Temple. However, according to the Talmud, on ‘Sukkot’ God judges the people for water and determines how much rain will fall from the heavens in the coming year. Given the fact that the Land of Israel is very dependent on rainfall, it seems that ‘Sukkot’ should be a solemn time and not one of joyous celebration. What then is the reason for such festivity? By making His people dependent on rainfall which comes from heaven, God ensures that they must maintain a close connection with Him at all times. It is the constant connection with the Almighty, by virtue of His children’s continued dependence on Him, which is cause for great celebration. In the same way the world is dependent upon God, there are countless people throughout the Holy Land dependent upon friends and neighbors to support them in their time of need. Meir Panim seeks to ease their struggle and make this Sukkot a truly enjoyable one.

An ultra-Orthodox Jewish youth walks next to a Sukkah during the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Mea Shearim. Sukkot commemorates the Israelites’ 40 years of wandering in the desert and a decorated hut or tabernacle (in Hebrew, Sukkah) is erected outside religious households as a sign of temporary shelter.
