Hag Sameach! A Joyous Festival to all!
In the afterglow of our memorable Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur observance, we celebrate Sukkot, the Festival of Ingathering. Sukkot marks the conclusion of the agricultural period in the Land of Israel, and is one of three Torah-ordained festivals - the others being Passover and Shavuot - during which our Israelite ancestors offered up the best of their produce as sacrifices to God.
The sukkot, or 'booths' we construct today, not unlike those erected by our forebears in the wilderness, are temporary dwellings: they remind us of the transient nature of life. In bringing us closer to nature, they inform us of life's fragility and vulnerability. Meanwhile, the arba minim, or 'four species' - lulav, etrog, willow and myrtle - teach us the festival's agricultural association, and that our Jewish calendar is tied to the seasons and history of Israel.
My more-personal message is a simple 'thank you' to all who helped to make Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur at Temple Shalom such a special experience. You are a lovely community and I am grateful for how you have welcomed me. We have much to look forward to in the coming months.
Todah Rabbah - thank you, and l'hitraot - see you again soon.
With best wishes from Deborah, Max and I,
Rabbi Bill S. Tepper
