Special Ways to Celebrate Feast of Tabernacles in Israel

Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, and to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles. Zechariah 14:16 (The Israel Bible™)

This year, Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) begins at nightfall on Sunday, September 23 and runs until nightfall on Monday, October 1.

One of the three pilgrim festivals – along with Pesach (Passover) and Shavuot (Pentecost) – the Feast of Tabernacles is an especially auspicious time to be in Israel in general, and in Jerusalem in particular. In 2016, the Tourism Ministry estimated that there were approximately 47,000 Christian tourists in Israel over Sukkot. These Christian pilgrims’ presence should be appreciated because their participation in the “Feast of Tabernacles” plays a significant role in bringing Jews closer to celebrating Sukkot the way it is described in the books of the prophets.
