Today’s Israel Inspiration

The seventh feast given to Israel is called Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles). After the Children of Israel entered the Holy Land, Sukkot became the festival associated with the fall harvest during which thanks was given to Hashem for sustaining the Children of Israel with
the bounty of the Land. In fact, the Torah refers to the Feast of Tabernacles both as Chag HaSukkot and Chag HaAsif, the festival of booths and the harvest festival. In emulating Hashem’s care and generosity toward His people, Sukkot is an important time to give charity in general, and especially to the Land and People of Israel. One of the most meaningful way to contribute to the Land and People of Israel is by planting trees in the areas of Israel in which they are most needed. Donating trees and vines to Israel is the perfect way to sanctify, safeguard and celebrate the Jews’ continuous presence in the Holy Land. In light of the modern day miracle of the Jews return to their land, show your commitment to Hashem’s People and Land.

What is the Priestly Blessing?

In the days of the Holy Temple, the Priests would ascend a platform  after the morning sacrificial offerings, and bless the gathered throngs of worshipers with the words of Numbers 6:24-26. With the destruction of the Temple, the blessing is administered in the course of the prayer services. During Sukkot, a nation-wide Priestly Blessing is conducted from the Western Wall in Jerusalem. Worshipers from around the country convene at the Western Wall for this unparalleled spiritual experience.
