On Sukkot with Rabbi Salomon

I always enjoy Rabbi Salomon, but this time in particular, the engaging smile and wonderful tone of voice...the message... he really spoke to me on Sukkot. I am a Reform Jew living in Victoria BC. A regular to Salomon Says. thank you for being there. Glenn

excellant comentaries on lulav and etrog, deep but yet simple. Toda. Question: What special liturgy is done during Sukkot? My grandfather, may he rest in peace, told me of liturgy that tranlsated, "Glory to HaShem in the highest peace on earth..." said during Sukkot. Where can I find this liturgy? Toda

Yes, something to think about. I never thought about the lulav, the etrog, the willow... in quite this way. The most beautiful sukkot ceremony was for me at Elat Chayim with Rabbi Marcia Prager. We waved lulav and shook that etrog and felt we were drawing, in our dance of praise, of love, on the powers of the universe. It was beautiful and I feel it still.

basking in the fruits of life

Thanks, Rabbi Soloman! It's important to cherish things in life in the right way. Additionally, early fall is one of my favorite times of the year.
