Pronounced, KHAHG sah MEHY ahkh,. This is a typical greeting in Hebrew during any festive occasion. It means happy festival.
Today is the beginning of Sukkot, or the Feast of Tabernacles. (Actually, it began at sundown on September 18.) It one of the three principal feasts belong to the Lord God. (The other two being Passover and Pentecost.) It is unfortunate that this is the feast the least known outside of Israel. For in it are promises regarding the coming and the coming again of the messiah.
In general, Sukkot, is a commemoration of the forty years the children of Israel spent living in tents in the desert after God brought them up out of Egypt. But it is also a celebration of the fact that God has chosen to “tabernacle” among His people.
We encourage you today to do you own study of the importance of this “Feast of the Lord.”
And – Hag Semach!
