It's amazing how you can sum up such an important seemingly "unreachable" value and state of being in just a few minutes! Thank-you Rabbi Goldwicht! It's going back to the essentials, the inner core connection we have with our Creator and how being in Eretz Yisroel and living the Torah an Mitzvos right here is how we experince our deepest sense of purpose, connection and fullfillment, without all the frills. We have been blessed after 2000 years to return to our homeland. May all of our holy breathren be blessed to leave their gashmius behind in Chutz L'Aretz and make the hoy trek back to Eretz Yisroel, to partake of Hashem's unique gift to us. May Am Yisroel be zoche to feel this beautiful connection during Sukkus! Chag Semeach!!

Happiness Grows When We Bring Happiness to Others?

We bring the four kinds, together. We sit, together, in the Sukkah.

In coming together we have the opportunity to lift others up, and bring them some more happiness. We can help others. We can praise them. We can celebrate them.

Chag Someach!
