Happy Sukkot from The Fellowship!

Sukkot -- 14315505 Celebrating Sukkot at the Western Wall (photo: Jack Hazut)

Jewish people around the globe are preparing to celebrate Sukkot this coming Monday. During this holiday, also known as the Feast of Tabernacles, Jews follow the biblical command to “live in temporary shelters for seven days.” These structures, known as a sukkot, are simple huts that bring to mind the temporary dwellings the Israelites inhabited as they wandered in the dessert for 40 years, utterly dependent on God's provision.

Learn more about the Jewish holiday of Sukkot by downloading our free study, Sukkah: Living in Joy, now. In observance of this holiday, we will suspend activity on the Bridge blog. But we’ll be back with fresh content on Tuesday. Until then, may you know the joy of God’s rich provision.
