Today marks the beginning of Sukkot, the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles. Sukkot is a festival of the harvest, where Jewish people have dinner together in a fun tent called a sukkah. Sukkot celebrates the ways in which G-d protected and provided for the Jewish people as they walked through the harsh conditions of the desert to the Promised Land. The festival runs from tonight, October 2, to October 9 this year.
Tonight I will be live-streaming a short performance from our own Sukkot Shabbat dinner at 6:30 PM EST. Tune in to my Facebook page to see my back porch transformed into a beautiful sukkah. I will be singing the Yom Kippur songs that you were unable to hear on Monday due to technical difficulties and stormy weather. See you then!
