Sukkos and Buh-Bye For a Couple Weeks

Sukkos arriveth.

I just love Sukkos!!  The relief after the intensity of the high holidays.

The most spectacular season of the whole year.

My Sukkah!  Wow, I just love my Sukkah.

Sitting in the Sukkah at night... sipping butternut squash soup... wrapped in a wool pashmina... talking and laughing with family and guests... hearing the neighbors singing holiday songs in their Sukkahs around us... it's a magical time.

Wishing all of my readers a beautiful holiday, if you celebrate.  If you don't, try to visit a Sukkah over the holiday - seeing is believing.

And this, friends, will be my last post till November 6th, as I fly away to the most Holy Land the day after the holiday ends - October 23rd.

Can't wait to celebrate, can't wait for Israel, see you all on the other side.

Shalom, Chag Sameach (happy holiday).


  1. Hi! How wonderful you'll get to spend part of this holiday time in Israel. I've only been to Israel in the summer or in late December. I would love to go some time to experience the chagim, or even a few of them, in the Holy Land. Safe travels! Nina :)

  2. Thanks Nina! Welcome to OOTOB. I'm actually leaving for Israel right after the holiday. But I did live in Israel for 5 years and got to spend many chagim there - a true treat.

    Hope your Sukkot is wonderful (and that your Sukkah survives).
