Succos and Yosef

What is the connection between Yosef and Succos? Why do we read the prophecies of Gog and Magog during Succos? Why do we leave our homes and enter these temporary dwelling places? How do we remind ourselves of the fact that Hashem is constantly in our lives?

Find out in this week’s parsha podcast.

    Not for Publication – or as you like…
    hello Ari,
    I am glad that I 'found you' again.
    i thought that you no longer blog.
    Chazk ve'ematz and chazak u'varuch!
    I was wondering if you ever did get around to finding more info about the famous East European Jewish play called "The Yosef Schpiel?".
    It is a highly emotionally charged play – but if you are strong as your name implies, it would be worthwhile to see it – just onece. BTW This play most definitely would NOT be played in cinemas 🙂
    BTW It is Motzei Shabba't in this part of the world. [11:35] That would be minus 7 hours in Israel.

    I've learned to keep my mouth shut about Moshiach. It's better to look smart than to look dumb! 🙂 I try to say what I know, instead of what I think I know. Emotionally charged – it's not for me. I get way too caught up in stuff like that.
