Sukkot -- 14315505

Happy Sukkot from The Fellowship!

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.

Sukkot: Living in Joy

This coming Monday is the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, also known as the Feast of Tabernacles. Starting this day, Jews inhabit sukkah, or temporary shelters that remind them of the huts the Israelites lived in during their 40 yeras of wandering in the desert. They spend time in these sukkah for a whole week, receiving the tangible reminder that all we have comes from God. Learn more about Sukkot with our Limmud study.

Tens of Thousands Pay Last Respects to Shimon Peres

It hasn’t just been world leaders and dignitaries who have gathered from around the globe to honor the life and legacy of Shimon Peres, Israel’s former president and prime minister. Yesterday, while lying in state at the Knesset (Israel’s parliament), more than 40,000 people filed past his coffin to pay their last respects.

God’s Little Alarm Clock

This year, my wife and I welcomed a healthy baby boy into our family. He smiles whenever our eyes make contact, and laughs whenever we rub his chubby belly. No words or actions can ever express the gratitude we feel toward God for this blessing. As it turns out, our bundle of joy loves to show off his roaring voice every morning at around four o’clock.
