So we’re in Israel. We are going to be here for Sukkot! Both the Rabbinical and the New moon. They’re at different times this year.
Sukkot, Feast of Tabernacles, Festival of Booths, Wedding Feast, etc.
Lev 23:39 ‘On the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you gather in the fruit of the land, observe the festival of יהוה for seven days. On the first day is a rest, and on the eighth day a rest.
Lev 23:40 ‘And you shall take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of good trees, branches of palm trees, twigs of leafy trees, and willows of the stream, and shall rejoice before יהוה your Elohim for seven days.
Lev 23:41 ‘And you shall observe it as a festival to יהוה for seven days in the year – a law forever in your generations. Observe it in the seventh month.
Lev 23:42 ‘Dwell in booths for seven days; all who are native Yisra’ĕlites dwell in booths,
It’s very basic, but major.
Since 2005 we spent all our Sukkots friends in PA,
One of the memorable ones was when all us kids spent the week under the stars.
We did this in 2007. And it was Awesome! A bit scary at first but totally worth it!
One night all us kids were already asleep, and well we didn’t find out until the morning that the cow and horse had gotten out and were running around everywhere last night. So, the adults said that while getting the animals back into the pasture, they also had to stand guard around us kids so we wouldn’t get trampled. We didn’t hear a word, nor did we even guess what happened. Until our parents told us.
there were 6 of us most nights and 1 or 2 nights there was about 8-10, of us out there. Boys on one side girls on the other. We didn’t have two tarps big enough, to have separate tarps.
But it was really good.
In 2009 then we went to one in Missouri. Where we met even more people.
After that one we had one in Nova Scotia. It was a great Sukkot! I missed all the people of course but it was a nice family one.
When we had to move to a different site, we tried to take it with us. The whole campground I think was laughing for a week. They said we looked like the Flintstones (you know the cartoon, I don’t think I spelt the name right but, oh well). Sorry but I don’t have a picture of it.
Sadly it didn’t last the move. But you wanna see what we did with it afterwards!?
No he’s not injured, but it was only strong enough to bear his weight. So he was the Ginnea pig. We walked all around the campground with him like that. He said it was quite comfortable if he wasn’t so afraid of falling! We never dropped him.
So those are some of the most memorable sukkots that I can post about at this moment.
There’s always something memorable about them all. These have been my favorite so far though, and there’s going to be many, many more in the future.
So I’m signing off for now.
