Have you ever wondered what the significance is of the 8th day of Sukkot? When we read the instructions for the feast of Sukkot in the book of Leviticus, there seems to be some distinction between the first seven days and the 8th day. Why is this so? Is there a special meaning to this day? We have come to understand that this day is indeed different and has a very special prophetic significance. Read here to learn more about this. It will bless you and give you something to look forward to!

This may sound strange to you. How can the Kingdom be restored, one sukkah at a time? What does this mean? We have come to understand the main purpose of the Tabernacle through a previous study. The foremost, but not the only, purpose of the tabernacle was to be a set apart place for YHVH to dwell with His people. We want to show you how the feast of Sukkot, also known as the feast of Booths or the feast of Tabernacles, is not only connected with the tabernacle, but also a picture of YHVH dwelling, once again, among His people. We will also show you how this feast is part of YHVH’s restoration.
It is almost the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippurim. We have written a few posts on this appointed time before, the most important being the post about what we are to do on Yom Kippurim. We are commanded to afflict our beings on this day, and if you use Scripture to interpret Scripture, clearly we are indeed to fast and repent on this day. In this post, we would like to focus more on the other part of this day, repentance. We want to show you also why you are to, not only, focus on your personal repentance but to look wider and also repent on behalf of and together as a nation.
Whenever we travel to Israel for one of the feasts, we always look for something of interest to do. Traveling with our kids also means that we have to look for something that would interest them. However, in a country as rich in culture and history, it is not a difficult task. On one of these trips, we decided to give our kids a better understanding of what archeology is and what value it adds. After some searching, we found the ideal solution. We could join a group of professional archeologists who are busy excavating a site near Jerusalem. We would all join them in a physical dig! We ended up with a very pleasant and enlightening day that I am sure all the kids would remember. Let me share some of this with you.
