Looking forward to Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah

Going up to Simchat Torah, the Rejoicing of the Torah, remembering how everything we have is a gift from Hashem, Who has given His Word to guide us through our life.

A celebration of harvest, and of thanksgiving for the provision God has given

The fall Feast of Tabernacles is an “ingathering,” a celebration of harvest, and of thanksgiving for the provision God has given. In Israel, families will spend the week of celebration living in, or at least gathering in, temporary dwellings, rejoicing together while remembering the days of old.
