“Celebrate this as a festival to the LORD…This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come…so your descendants will know that I had the Israelites live in temporary shelters when I brought them out of Egypt.”
Yesterday was the first day of Sukkot, the Jewish holiday also known as the Feast of Tabernacles, when Jews around the world build temporary structures, called sukkot, where they eat, entertain, and even sleep for the coming week. The sukkot call to mind the temporary dwellings the Israelites lived in while they wandered in the desert for 40 years, and serve as a tangible reminder of God’s faithful provision today. Let us be reminded of his sovereignty over our world and our lives as we lift these prayer requests to Him.
- On Yom Kippur, a gunman in Halle, Germany, carried out an anti-Semitic attack at a synagogue in the city. Two people were killed, and two more were injured. Pray for the loved ones of those lost, as well as the recovery of the injured. “Heal me, LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise” (Jeremiah 17:14).
- As anti-Semitic attacks target Jewish worshipers, The Fellowship continues to provide security for synagogues worldwide. Thank God for our faithful friends who help provide protection for His people. “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you” (Deuteronomy 31:6).
- It is also heartening to see people in Germany and elsewhere speaking out against anti-Semitism and for the Jewish people. Pray that more people will be moved to take a bold stand in defense of God’s people. “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you” (Genesis 12:3).
- Praise God that The Fellowship’s High Holy Days food outreach was able to provide nourishment and hope to thousands of impoverished Jews in Israel, the former Soviet Union, and elsewhere during this holiest of seasons. “The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor” (Proverbs 22:9).
