Praying on Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) toward the Temple Mount
where the Holy Temple stood in Yeshua's day in Jerusalem.

Happy Sukkot, Hans!

"On the fifteenth day of the seventh month the Lord’s Feast of Tabernacles begins, and it lasts for seven days.  The first day is a sacred assembly; do no regular work.  For seven days present offerings made to the Lord by fire, and on the eighth day hold a sacred assembly and present an offering made to the Lord by fire.  It is the closing assembly; do no regular work." (Leviticus 23:3436)

Tonight starts the first day of the weeklong Festival of Sukkot (Tabernacles).

Here in Israel and around the world, the Jewish People are spending time in the sukkot (plural of sukkah) that they built when Yom Kippur ended just days ago.

This holiday is a pilgrimage festival linked to the harvest, so it is also known as Chag HaAsif (Festival of Ingathering).  In ancient times, every Israelite went up to Jerusalem to celebrate Sukkot at the Temple.

Sukkot are everywhere in Israel right now.  It's such a sight to see!  You find
them on balconies and verandas, in alleys, and even beside pools.  Many families
eat their meals in the sukkah.  Some also host a sukkah party there during the Feast.

Sukkot is also a commemoration of the 40 years that Israel wandered in the wilderness and lived in temporary dwellings following the exodus from Egypt.

"Live in booths [sukkot] for seven days:  All native-born Israelites are to live in booths so your descendants will know that I had the Israelites live in booths when I brought them out of Egypt.'"  (Leviticus 23:4243)

This holiday is a very joyous one, so much so that it is also called Z'man Simchateinu, the Season of Rejoicing!

"On the first day you are to take choice fruit from the trees, and palm fronds, leafy branches and poplars, and rejoice before the Lord your God for seven days."  (Leviticus 23:40, see also Nehemiah 8:15)

A Jewish man faces east toward Jerusalem and prays while waving
the lulav and the etrog in his sukkah.  The etrog (in the left hand) and
lulav (in the right hand) are held together in the traditional fashion
and waved or shook toward the east, south, west, and north.

While one of the main observances of this holiday is spending time in the sukkah, the lulav (a bundle of date palm fond, myrtle, and willow) and anetrog (a deliciously fragrant lemon-like citrus) are also waved before the Lord.

When the Temple stood, this waving ceremony was performed on all seven days of Sukkot at the Holy Temple.

Sukkot, which follows right after Rosh HaShanah (Day of Judgment) and Yom Kippur (the day the judgment is sealed), represents renewed fellowship with God.

Since the etrog (citron) is used in a religious ceremony, it must be
absolutely perfect.  Great care and delight is taken in finding one
that is perfectly formed, beautiful, and without blemish.

We all look forward to the future fulfillment of this Day of Ingathering when the Jewish People are gathered and Messiah will reign on the earth (Isaiah 27:1213; Jeremiah 23:78).

At that time, the Bible says, the nations will come before the Lord during the Feast of Sukkot to worship Him in Jerusalem.

"Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, and to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles." (Zechariah 14:16)
