Talmudic expert Professor Jeffrey Wolf of Bar Ilan University discusses with Eve some of the aspects of the holiday of Sukkoth/Tabernacles, which is also the time of the date harvest in the Land of Israel. Why do some Christians also descend on Jerusalem? What remnants of the Temple service have we incorporated into the synagogue? Experiences, faith and historical memory converge in this wonderful holiday of the booths. Chag Sameach, everyone.
