Sukkot/Feast of Tabernacles
Time & Location
About the Event
Sukkot is the last of the annual feasts for the Jewish year, and it celebrates G-d’s provision with rejoicing and thankfulness. It’s the only one of the annual feasts in which G-d commanded there be rejoicing!
G-d instructed His people to build booths (also called tabernacles) and live in them for the week-long feast of Sukkot. Forsaking our comfortable homes to dine and sleep in sukkot (booths) reminds us of G-d’s provision for the Israelites in the wilderness and of all that He has provided in our own lives today. Coming at the end of the harvest season, Sukkot also celebrates God’s gifts from the bounty of the Earth.
I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty and Your wonders. They will speak of the might of Your awesome deeds, and I will proclaim Your greatness. They will pour out the renown of Your great goodness, and sing joyfully of Your righteousness.
–Psalm 145: 5-7
He satisfies the thirsty soul and fills the hungry soul with what is good. –Psalm 107:9
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Messiah Yeshua. –Philippians 4:19
