A Breath of Fresh Air in the Mountains of the Shomron

Open Succa!

Welcome to our Succa!

On the holiday of Succot we live for seven days outside in a temporary structure.  Succot are naturally open, you can often hear your neighbor’s zemirot or get a visit from the local wildlife.  Succot lend themselves to guests.  This fits nicely with a theme represented by the four species that all elements of Am Yisrael are bound together on Succot.

Happy to be in the Succa!

Our Succa this year was blessed to have two gatherings grace its walls.  On Friday night Shabbat Chol Hamoed Succot we invited the whole community for singing, Divrei Torah and snacks.  I taught a special song “Om Ani Choma אום אני חומה” that I learned from Rav Amital Z”L from my days at Yeshivat Har Etzion.

Come and have a bite!

On Shabbat afternoon Yael organized the first ever Ohel Efraim Succa Hop!  We visited the Kessin, Maizels and Buchbut Succa, had snacks, sang songs and told stories – but this time for the under seven crowd!

Ed:  All pictures were not taken on Shabbat or Chag!
