Hallel; Leviticus 22:26 – 23:44; Numbers 29:12-16 || Zechariah 14
Commentary by Rav Gedalia Meyer for The Temple Institute, Jerusalem, Israel:
«The festival of Sukkot is all about a return to the man – G-d – creation paradigm, recaptured in its purity by dwelling in temporary sukkot – booths – throughout the seven day holiday. Our sukkot booths with their frail walls and organic roofs replicate the booths our ancestors dwelled in during their forty year desert journey from slavery to freedom, from exile to returnWhat was essential for our fathers’ well-being – closeness to G-d and freedom from want, is likewise what’s best for us. As the classic song states, “The fundamental things apply, As time goes by.”»…» more
