Sunset is a lovely time

Sunset is a lovely time.  During Elul, we use all our efforts to become better people, by looking back upon our deeds and do better next time,  Just as sunset is the end of the day, and we reflect upon what we have done this day, so Elul is the same for the whole year.  May everyone in Am Yisrael use this time to reflect and correct all the character flaws that we have and do better next Year!

Chag Sameach Sukkot!

It is the happiest season of the Jewish Year!  Let's take a tour of Jerusalem as she gets ready for Sukkot!
 Here are some enterprising young men selling the 4 species, on Givat Shaul Street.  Yoel, in front has sets of the Lulav, Etrog, Haddasim at a good price!
 These are Hadassim, and Etrogim.
 The two etrogim here have Pitom, that is they are extra special!
 Every building has multiple Sukkas!
 More Sukkot!
 Here is a baby Etrog tree, about 6 Sumonths old.  It will be many years until we can pick its fruit!  Happy Sukkot!
