Celebrate the Abundance of the Season: Sukkot and Shmirat Haguf
Hosted By: Jewish Veg
The joyful holiday of Sukkot is also referred to as Chag HaAsif (Harvest Festival). We celebrate the bountiful harvest while commemorating the journey of our ancestors out of Egypt. A sukkah, with its temporary elements, is a reminder of how fragile life is and the importance of making each moment of our lives matter.
The mitzvah of shmirat haguf, guarding the body, reminds us to safeguard and preserve those moments. With an abundant season upon us—an agricultural feast—we can honor our past by taking care of ourselves in the present.
Join Jewish Veg on Wednesday, October 12, at 5 PM PT/8 PM ET for celebration and conversation.
