Succot Celebration 2017
When? October 8-10, 2017
Succot is one of the three feasts for which the Jews made a pilgrimage to the Temple in Jerusalem, and it’s the most joyful holiday in the Jewish calendar. It goes by many names – the Feast of Tabernacles, the Feast of Booths, the Festival of Ingathering – and it has both historical and agricultural meanings. Historically, it recalls when the Israelites wandered for 40 years in the desert, living in tents, or “booths” (“succot” means “booths”). Agriculturally, it’s a harvest celebration – the longest of the “pilgrim feasts,” at seven days, and a time to give thanks and praise to God for the harvest He provides. It’s prophesied that, in the Kingdom Age, all the nations will join together harmoniously during the feast of Succot.
“Then it will come about that any who are left of all the nations that went against Jerusalem will go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to celebrate the Feast of Booths.” Zechariah 14:16
