Thank you, Lori, so perfectly expressed, as usual.

When you hug someone, your chest and two arms form three "walls" around them. A Sukka needs a minimum of three walls because, as you say, it's a hug from Hashem. (As taught by Rabbi Shimshon Pincus, nephew of Rabbi Noah Weinberg)

HaShem's Heart

Dear Lori, I think that this is the most tender, beautiful "Almost Live" you have ever done. Thank you so much for that, it really touched my heart. The Sukkah seems, to me to be the chamber of HaShem's Heart opened just enough for us to enter and bask in His warmth and love. May you be there always. xoxo

Wonderful message about Sukkot from Lori

Thank God for your beautiful message about Sukkos and its relevance to us as children of God ;sometimes we need to know and remind ourselves that in the midst of challenges and almost hopeless situation we are facing that God is aware and understanding and ready to help us through to victory
