Celebrating Sukkot With God ✡ “Appear Before the Lord” – ISRAEL365

Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which He shall choose; on the feast of unleavened bread, and on the feast of weeks, and on the feast of tabernacles; and they shall not appear before the LORD empty

שָׁלוֹשׁ פְּעָמִים בַּשָּׁנָה יֵרָאֶה כָל זְכוּרְךָ אֶת פְּנֵי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ בַּמָּקוֹם אֲשֶׁר יִבְחָר בְּחַג הַמַּצּוֹת וּבְחַג הַשָּׁבֻעוֹת וּבְחַג הַסֻּכּוֹת וְלֹא יֵרָאֶה אֶת פְּנֵי יְהוָה רֵיקָם

Shabbat Inspiration

The Hebrew word ‘shalosh’ means three. Three indicates a strong unit or bond, as it says in Ecclesiastes (4:12), “A chain of three cannot be undone.” Perhaps for this reason there are three times a year when every Jew is commanded to make a pilgrimage to the Temple in Jerusalem and appear before God. This guarantees that he will re-connect with his Creator at least three times a year, ensuring that the bonds between them remain strong and will not be undone. Sukkot stands out from the other pilgrimage holidays in that its celebration was not limited to Jews. Rather, bull offerings were brought on behalf of all 70 nations of the world during the Feast of Tabernacles. This served as a mighty display of universal solidarity and worship of the One True God of Israel.

Reviving Ancient Foods in a Biblical Feast

The Biblical Museum of Natural History hosted its first Biblical feast last week, offering a unique opportunity to eat a banquet fit for Biblical appetites.

Redemption Tambourine

Miriam the prophetess led the Israelite women as they traveled through the desert towards Israel. Miriam prepared to take musical instruments with her on the journey into the desert in order to thank God for His miracles with song, when the time would arrive, thus demonstrating her unwavering faith in God’s redemption. The tambourine has come to symbolize our anticipation and faith in the future redemption.
