Yes, it’s Sukkot. I was too busy to blog before the start of the festival, but it happened anyway.

Want to know something funny about this year’s Sukkot? When I lived in Glasgow, Sukkot marked the start of the real rainy season. Almost without fail, the first night in the Sukkah was a wet one. A very wet one.

This year in Israel, we got our first rain of the season on the afternoon before Sukkot. (It was only a tinkle, but it was still rain.) That is very unusual for this part of the world. Do you think somebody is trying to tell us anything?

Chag Sameach!
