During Israel’s Sukkot holiday, Israel Relief Aid helped in blessing
around 100 Holocaust Survivors in the northern city of Haifa.
Buses brought them to a whole program about the holiday,
with a full meal (enjoyed by the pensioners) and unexpected take-home gift. These Holocaust Survivors have very little
income, usually only a stipend or two but not enough to be called a full income
Holocaust Survivors enjoy programs of music, singing, dances
and teaching as well, as they love to learn.
Israel’s Sukkot holiday is the “Happy Holiday” in which a stipulation of the observance is that Israelis will be “only happy”.
The eighth day of Sukkot, which is a holiday of complete
rest, in which no work is to be done, has always been a mystery. At the program, ideas were discussed and a
lot of interest stirred up to read further about the meanings of the
holiday. Hebrew reference materials were also on hand
for the guests.
