Sukkot, 11 Tishrei 5778

October 1, 2017

On Wednesday night we begin the Festival of Sukkot, the time of our joy. During this holiday a special Light is available to us called Or Makif (surrounding Light). Our focus during these days should be joy and sharing. It is during this time that we create a temporary dwelling called a sukkah (meaning booth or tabernacle) and practically live in this abode during the 7 days. Modern life doesn't make it so easy to construct a sukkah, either we live in a largely populated area or we may live in a region that is already seeing frost. However, our consciousness during this time should be that we rely on G-d for protection and sustenance. One of the customs of this time is to welcome guests into our sukkah or homes with joy. This is a good time to entertain friends and have festive meals. We should remember that whenever we do something in this world, it is reflected in the Upper Worlds. The Light of Sukkot comes to infuse joy and sharing in our lives. May we be full of joy and brighten the world with the light of gladness during this coming festival.

Please Donate To Keep Kabbalah4All Going
The word "tzedakah" in Hebrew means charity, but actually the word is derived from the root word which means righteousness, justice or fairness. Giving is not viewed as a generous act, it is simply an act of righteousness and justice. Tzedakah is in many ways an exchange of energy and is a visible expression of gratitude in this world for that which we have received. We rely on the generosity of others so that we may make our siddurim (prayer books) and other resources available for all, as well as continue to offer meaningful studies and inspiring services. Please help support our community by making a DONATION. We thank you in advance for your generosity.
