Congregation Bnai Israel

During Sukkot, we get a taste of what it would be like not to have a home.  Just as our Sukkah is open to the world, so we must not return to our homes, closed off to the needs of others.  May we be inspired through our symbolic homelessness to renew our commitment to work for a time when no one will be compelled to live outdoors for lack of a home.  Rabbi Mordecai zl wrote "The Sukkah is the symbol of protest against the injustices and inequities of current civilization, and the need for upholding standards of righteousness which our civilization should seek to achieve.
