Jews around the world just commemorated the holiest day of the year: Yom Kippur. It is a day of fasting, reflection and repentance. Observant Jews in Israel jam the Western Wall plaza, while more secular Jews (especially young ones) take to the empty streets and highways on bicycles.

Now, with Yom Kippur in the rearview mirror, Jewish eyes turn toward the Feast of Tabernacles, the most festive and joyful feast of the year! Stay tuned…we’ll discuss that fabulous feast in days to come.
Meanwhile, did you know you can take in some of the festivities online? The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem hosts the Feast of Tabernacles gathering in Jerusalem every year, bringing thousands of Christians from around the world together in worship to the King of Kings! The Feast of Tabernacles activities begin Friday (October 6, 2017) and live streaming (as well as replays) of activities will be posted here. Check it out!
