Setting Up the Sukkah Today 🍋🌿

41 You are to observe it as a feast to Adonai seven days in the year; it is a permanent regulation, generation after generation; keep it in the seventh month.
42 You are to live in sukkot for seven days; every citizen of Isra’el is to live in a sukkah, 43 so that generation after generation of you will know that I made the people of Isra’el live in sukkot when I brought them out of the land of Egypt; I am Adonai your God.’”
{Leviticus 23:41-43 CJB}

the Hebrew Gypsy

Today is the 14th day of the (revised) Hebrew calendar and the day I set up the sukkah for the Feast of Tabernacles/ Sukkot here in Tennessee. I say “revised” because, a few days ago I realized (finally) that we have been a month late all year, even missing Yom Kippur/ Day of Atonement 😥; the most crucial day of Yah’s calendar. But we are back on track.

Even restaurants in Israel build a Sukkah for patrons to eat in.

You may have seen photos of sukkahs in Israel, or perhaps even seen them in person, but sukkahs in Tennessee are a bit different. You see, often in Tennessee during Sukkot it will rain as it has been today and an open topped sukkah would hardly do. Tent camping is a necessity. Tent camping for seven great days!

They get imaginative in Israel. 🙃🐫

Get that man a ladder!
