Sukkos

The Time of Our Happiness

"I'm so disappointed!! There was no chopped liver at that wedding tonight!!"

In our prayers we refer to Pesach as, "The Time of Our Freedom," Shavuos as, "The Time of Receiving the Torah," and Succos as, "The Time of Our Happiness". Some commentaries explain that the reason we read Koheles (Ecclesiastics), whose theme is the vanity of worldly pleasures, on Succos is to teach us that true happiness comes with a proper perspective of life.

On Succos, despite living in temporary dwellings that aren't as comfortable as our homes, we can learn the lessons of Koheles and can find true happiness!!

Have a happy Succos!!

Rabbi Chaim Flom
