Batya MedadNew York-born Batya Medad made aliyah with her husband just weeks after...
It's the Succot holiday, and there has been lots of building here in Judea, Samaria and the entire Jewish World.
I took these photos in my neighborhood. When I walked around a few minutes ago, many more succot were up, and many already had the s'chach (ritual succah roofing) on top. Succot is one of those great holidays for photographers, much more so than Passover. Of course, there have been years when I've found what to photograph when cleaning for Passover. Davka on Rosh Hashannah we had neighbors over to eat one of the festive holiday meals. They're pretty new to Shiloh and hadn't been our guests before. They surprised us by saying that they first heard of Shiloh when google recommended my blogs. And then the wife entered my kitchen: Wow!
"I've seen your kitchen before." My head was spinning. How could she have seen my kitchen? She had never been in the house. "You posted pictures on your blog showing it all covered for Pesach."None of the succot here are mine.
It's amazing how quickly some people seem to be ready to live in their new rooms. Will the Appease Now activists come and volunteer to help us take apart our succot after the holiday and put the
peaces pieces away?
