The Festival of Sukkot 5775

Our yearly rendezvous with G-d, which began in the month of Av, built up steam throughout the month of Elul, left us reeling and breathless from Rosh HaShana and literally out of this world on Yom Kippur, now places us in the only place possible for us to be in our heightened state of close proximity to G-d: in our Sukkot booths. These temporary dwellings are like our own personal Holy of Holies – beyond time and space – a heavenly embrace – seven perfect days.

Chag Sameach – חג שמח – Have a Joyful Sukkot!
