חג סוכות שמח

October 3, 2012

Suckot, also known as Festival of Booths (no, not: booze…)  is the oldest and actually the basic Oktoberfest, celebrated in huts or cottages, which open roofs are covered with branches and leaves, so that you may see the stars at the sky … probably the inspiration for the festzelt (party tent). The German word Festzelt actually is the litaral translation of the Biblical Hebrew term אוהל מעוד which in English usually is tranlated as “tent of meeting” or “tabernacle” (in German commonly: “Stiftszelt”). The main part of the festival however is not sitting in the sucka in order to eat and drink, but to take the Lulav (לולב), which also is known as the 4 species (ארבעת המינים), that is the Etrog fruit (אתרוג ,citrus medica), which according tradition was the fruit from the tree of the Garden of Eden, 3 branches from the myrtle (הדס), two branches from a fresh willow (ערבה) and finally the eponymous lulav which is the frond or stem from a date palm tree. To take the Lulav actually means to shake it …

Das älteste und eigentliche Oktoberfest ist das jüdische Laubhüttenfest (Suckot, Sukkot, …), welches alljährlich Ende September anfang Oktober gefeiert wird, wobei der wesentlichste bestandteil des Festes eigentlich der Festsrauß der vier Arten ist – vorausgesetzt man findet frische Bestandteile dafür. 🙂

Festival Greetings from Huerben

October 9, 2009

Impression from a recreated Sucka in the gable roof of the Mittelschwaebisches Heimatmuseum (Middle Swabian Museum of Local History) in Krumbach/Huerben (Heinrich Sinz Str. 3-5), which once was built by the Jewish horse trade Neuburger. The Walls of the Sucka colorfully were painted by a local artist and the table is decorated with candle holder. plastic fruits, nice doilies … unfortunatetely the most essential feature of the Feast of Tabernacles (or Booths) so far is missing: the Lulav. But maybe next year ..?
