Stand for Israel is suspending activity October 17 for Sukkot, the joyful Feast of Tabernacles. We’ll be back on Tuesday, October 18 — 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 1949, an Israeli family in Abu Kebir near Tel Aviv builds their 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.
