We are on the road to Sukkos!
That's right. It's Aliyat Haregel time. Time to take to the roads, time to come up to Jerusalem for the holiday.
It's Sukkot. It's Hallel, It's shaking the Lulav, it's the Priestly Blessing. It's the Holiday of Simcha. The Rabbis teach that if you didn't experience the "celebration of the water drawing" in Jerusalem at the time of the Temple you didn't experience simcha. Gevaldt! But you know, we are in Israel, default value is Simcha. Time to move into the Sukka and feel the JOY. It's there, let's just open ourselves up and let it in!
....and of course, to help us get there, a little travelin' music, would you please?
Chag Sameyach, Good Yom Tov, Good Year!
Remember, Sunday is the Radio Free Nachlaot Sukkos party - be there in person, or watch and listen to us on the Radio, brought to you by The Temple Institute (who have sponsored the Sukka which now stands high atop undisclosed Studio A) and Be There Israel.(www.bethereisrael.com). The party starts at 3:00 PM with Rocky (Yerachmiel) and we'll see where it goes from there!
C Ya on the Radio..
