Take me out of Egypt!

Filed under: Blog Torah — Reb Moshe @ 3:57 pm

Take me out of Egypt! That is what this holiday is all about. But how come we don’t celebrate Succos before Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Because, the holiday is so pure and holy that we needed these previous ones in order to cleanse ourselves. If a person knew the true greatness of being in the succah, they would have someone handcuff them to the succah walls. Every day we invite the avos, our forefathers to join us within. This is not merely a false prayer. When we recite this, we are inviting the holiness of these Righteous Tzaddikim within our new dwelling. No other time of the year do we say such a prayer except in the succah. Therefore, you can only imagine how spiritual the inside of ones succah dwelling truly is…

  4. jimmy, i hope not only since being in mitzrayim. I am sure you could find a succah there, people love when you visit their succah even if you don’t know them.

  5. You know I could never do that. However, maybe next year you could invite me for a meal in your succah…. especially if chicken in pineapple juice is on the menu 😉

  6. speaking of my cooking. I traifed the milk sink last night and a pot. About 2 years ago, people used to compliment my cooking but now, it has all gone for the worst. I think it is jimmies fault for making fun of my unusual ingredients. Maybe it ruined the miracle of my tasty delights.

  7. This year we had so many guest to come and they all canceled for succos. Is someone passing around a rummer that we are serving rabbanut and not bedatz kosher food?
