One of the feasts will be celebrated eternally – which one? – ONE FOR ISRAEL

Dr Erez Soref President of  ONE FOR ISRAEL 

No sooner have we had the Feast of Trumpets, followed by the Day of Atonement, when up comes the next holiday: Sukkot – the Feast of Tabernacles! 

There are so many Jewish feasts at this time of year, that it’s hard for Israelis to get anything done with all the days off – we always promise one another that we’ll get round to things “after the holidays!” Sukkot is a particularly joyful feast, not least because God himself commands us to rejoice. And we have plenty to rejoice about – the joy of our salvation, and fellowship with the Lord himself for eternity. This is one of the primary meanings of the Feast – we will “tabernacle” with Him forever.

Please pray for Erez who will be at Joel Rosenberg’s “Epicenter” conference in the US this weekend, joining other Jewish, Arab and Palestinian pastors and ministry leaders to share how the Gospel is advancing and what God is doing in our neighborhood. Together they will be answering the question,

“What Does the Future Hold for Israel & Her Neighbors?”

After this conference, Erez will go on to Dallas, Texas, for the “Gospel and the Middle East” conference at Dallas Theological Seminary and South Western Baptist Theological Seminary. Please pray for Erez as he shares at these events, that he would say what is on God’s heart and that they would be a great blessing to all who attend.

Please also pray for the new students who are enrolled to study with us this year! Pray that they would quickly dive deep into their studies and grow in the love of God, of one another, and gain a vision for taking up their unique place, serving in God’s ripe harvest field.


If you are in Israel during Sukkot, you will notice many flimsy looking booths pitched on balconies, in yards, even out on the street, as Jewish people obey the command to build a tabernacle or “sukka” for the week of Sukkot. Why, you might well wonder, did God want his people to build makeshift booths like this? Continue reading…

The Feast of Sukkot is a time of rejoicing and ingathering, but here we will concentrate on the waving of the four species, and the welcoming of Ushpizin (guests), and how Gentiles are very much included in this feast! Continue reading…
