Holiday of Unity
We are coming now after the completion of Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. On the holiday of Sukkot, we all unite as one, removing all our differences, while praying for a good and sweet new year. The unity shown during the holiday of Sukkot is so great because we acknowledge our differences and are still able to unite.
We see this by one of the main Mitzvot of Sukkot. We take the Lulav, combined with the Etrog, Haddasim and Aravot and shake them together. Four different species coming together in one single Mitzvah.
This is what makes the holiday of Sukkot such a special holiday - the obvious unity between fellow Jews.
Wishing you all a Chag Sameach! Candle lighting times: Monday at 6:38 PM & Tuesday after 7:35 from pre-existing flame
