Have a Blessed Sukkot!

One of my favorite foreign films celebrated the lives of an impoverished and childless Orthodox Jewish couple during the Sukkot Holiday.  This great, great, great movie, Ushpizin (2005), more than any film opened my eyes to Orthodox Jewish holidays especially the marvelous harvest holiday, the Feast of Tabernacles (or Ingathering, or of the Lord,) which began last Wednesday and continues through thisWednesday.  Wikipedia has an instructive article. Here's a link to the link for the movie.

Have a great holiday!  Note to self: gotta get one of those fur hats!
