Happy Sukkot from Stand for Israel

Stand for Israel is suspending activity Thursday, October 5, for Sukkot, the joyful Feast of Tabernacles. We’ll be back on Friday, October 6 — and rest assured, if any critically important developments related to Israel come up over the weekend, we’ll be here to let you know about them.

In this photo from 1950, a camp of new Israeli olim (immigrants) builds a sukkah, the temporary shelters in which the Jewish people eat, socialize, and even sleep during this biblical festival in order to remind them of the shelters which housed the Israelites during their time in the desert.
