Celebrating Sukkot - A Time for Rejoicing

Simcha, joy, is a mitzvah from the Torah. Sukkot is know as 'zman simchateinu' - a time of our rejoicing. Some might be wondering, how can Hashem ask us for 'joy on demand', especially at such a time when many are concerned or anxious about Covid19? Joy is like a internal spark of inner sunshine that shines out when we give it room. It is fed by positivity and the positive thought we chose to focus on. Everyone has all sorts of random thoughts whizzing through our heads. Some of these thought are negative, some scary, some positive and heart-warming. We have the power to push away negativity and focus on positivity. This is what we practise during sukkot! When we enter a sukkah, a place where we are more exposed to the element, it reminds us that Hashem is looking after us. This make us feel safe and therefor joyous!

Enjoy the clips and activities below and see what you can learn from it!! I wonder if you can make your own sukkah as a fun project! If you send me pictures of your work, I will be able to share them in a blog next week. You can send your work to This email address is being protected from spambots.
