Sukkot is associated with hospitality. We welcome guests into our sukkah; we appreciate the beauty of our friends’ sukkot and the meals they serve us there. We also invite ushpizin—imaginary honored guests, traditionally in the form of iconic male biblical characters. We suggest expanding your guest list to include women, portrayals of Jewish heroes, or people who have taught you lessons about hospitality.
Welcoming Guests: Ushpizin / Ushpizot
May our prayers and voices weave together to draw the Divine presence near.
Ushpizin connects us to all our ancestors, real and imagined...
