Thank you, Rabbi Fohrman, for this amazing video about sukkos. Like all of your others, this one brought tears to my eyes. Have a wonderful Sukkos. Next year, may we all be in Jerusalem!

Awe inspiring!

Well, Rabbi Fohrman, you've done it again!!!! I loved this video with explanation of the event that is Sukkot.
I have saved your other videos on Aish to my email. Your voice is very gentle and inspiring. You weave the events of our holy days into understanding that I can remember and pass on.
Thank you, again.
Chag sameach!
