For those who sent donations and tefilos for the kevrai tzaddikim in the Ukraine and Uman, thank you! Your prayers were delivered to the sites, may they have been accepted in Heaven and may Hashem grant you plentiful blessings.
For those who sent donations for the needy of Jerusalem and the Shomron (West Bank), thank you! Funds are being distributed, and you've eased the difficulties and brightened the holidays for those in need. May Hashem relieve your difficulties and grant you joyous days.
Tonight starts Succot, the festival of booths (boy I hate the English descriptive names). This time is known as Yom Simchasaynu, the days of our rejoicing! Having come before the King, and trusted in the True Judge, now we celebrate the joy of spending time with our G-d. Avinu Malkaynu, our Father, our King. Now is the time we rejoice in being together with our Father.
Now is also the time when we pray for peace and blessings for all the nations of the world. As is written, if the nations only knew of the incredible blessings of this time, they would rush to help the Jewish people rebuild the Beis HaMikdash. Unfortunately, many have not learned.
May everyone have a joyous Succot, and may we merit to spend time with our Father, our King, our G-d, with the rebuilding of the fallen Succah of Dovid HaMelech (King David) in Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) Habnuya and the coming of Moshiach Tzidkaynu.
Blogging note, with the holiday tonight through Shabbos, normal blogging won't resume until Sunday. During Chol HaMoed, the intermediate festival days of Succot, we tend to break a bit from our normal blogging pattern, so expect some different postings during that time. Chag Samayach!
