Happy Sukkot!

The Jewish holiday of “Sukkos” starts at sundown this evening. Time for more food!

The holiday of Sukkos is characterized by the unique commandment of dwelling in temporary, hut-like dwellings .

Kinna like camping..hehcampingani.

Leviticus (23: 42-43 ) “In booths you are to dwell for seven days …so that your generations will know that I caused the children of Israel to dwell in booths when I took them from the land of Egypt….”

Many Americans, claim that Sukkos reminds them of Thanksgiving…which aint too far away for all those thinkin bout new recipes. Yum.

The pilgrims were deeply religious people. (not Stone age in your face “Accept my so called religion or I’ll threaten to blow up the world religious.”)bombaaa

When they were trying to find a way to express their thanks for their survival and for the harvest, they looked to the Bible for an appropriate way of celebrating as well.

The original Thanksgiving was a harvest festival as well, that it was actually observed in October.

Sukkot commemorates the forty-year period during which the children of Israel were wandering in the desert, living in temporary shelters.
Agriculturally Sukkot is a harvest festival.

After the nation of Israel was rescued from the pursuing Egyptian nation by the splitting of the Red Sea, they sang a song in praise of God.

They uttered the words ” ‘This is my G-d, and I will adorn Him” … namely by making a beautiful “Sukkah” in His honor.

To all my Jewish friends..Happy Sukkos!

And to all Y’all Blessed Weekend.

KEEP UP THE RIGHTEOUS FIGHT~!

    This is a holiday I am unfamiliar with … Could it also go by the name of feast of tabernacles, or feast of boothes?
