The Brit-Am Message for Succoth 5769 no.1 Succoth in General
Shalom,
Tonight Monday evening, at sunset will begin the feast of Succoth. This lasts for seven days. The first day is a feast day. The day after Succoth is also a Feast Day. Altogether then we may say there are eight days with a festival at the beginning and another at the end.  The six days in between the two Festivals are ordinary days but have an elevated festive status. In Israel many people do not work throughout Succoth. Most shops and government offices are open for only half a day. Cafes, restaurants, hotels, synagogues all often have their own sucoth. People build Succoth on their verandas and in their backyards and sometimes even on the pavement outside their houses!
 
Religious Jews during Succoth eat and in many cases also sleep in Succoth. A Succah in principle consists of at least three walls and a roof of vegetation.  In practice one will find all kinds of walls being used. There are Succoth that fit perfectly all the optimum most stringent requirements and there are Succoth that are really only "Kosher" in a de facto sense when there is no alternative.  The roof of a Succah should be made of vegetable matter and should provide plenty of shade. In Israel many people use palm leaves for the roof. Palm leaves are attractive, clean, heavy enough not to be blown away by the wind and they provide plenty of shade. They are also long and convenient so that not a great number are needed. Instead of palm leaves other people use sugar cane matted together or sticks. Ordinary tree branches are also used. In Israel many local councils use the occasion to prune back trees in the public domain. It is the practice for workers of the local council to cut away the excess branches of all the trees in the neighborhood and then leave them in piles on street corners for the local inhabitants to take and use them for the roofs of their Succah.
 
The commandment to live in the Succoth only applies to the males but in practice the whole family usually eats together in the Succah.
 
Succot is a Festive happy occasion. In the Biblical Period it was harvest time. Many Jews will tell you that this is their favorite Feast. It is a time for the family to be together and taste something of outdoor living while not necessarily having to go outdoors.
In Biblical Times during Succoth there was ceremonial drawing up of the water from a spring near the Temple Mount. This was a very happy occasion and in memory of it throughout Israel one will find religious bands giving free concerts in the local squares and public places.
 
In the KJV the word Sukkah is translated as "booth".
The Feast of Succoth is called THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES.
 
     [Leviticus 23:33] AND THE LORD SPAKE UNTO MOSES, SAYING,                    
 
[Leviticus 23:34] SPEAK UNTO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, SAYING, THE FIFTEENTH DAY OF THIS SEVENTH MONTH  SHALL BE THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES FOR SEVEN DAYS UNTO THE LORD.                    
 
[Leviticus 23:35] ON THE FIRST DAY SHALL BE AN HOLY CONVOCATION: YE SHALL DO NO SERVILE WORK THEREIN.

[Leviticus 23:41] AND YE SHALL KEEP IT A FEAST UNTO THE LORD SEVEN DAYS IN THE YEAR. IT SHALL BE A STATUTE FOR EVER IN YOUR GENERATIONS: YE SHALL CELEBRATE IT IN THE SEVENTH MONTH....

[Leviticus 23:42] YE SHALL DWELL IN BOOTHS SEVEN DAYS; ALL THAT ARE ISRAELITES BORN SHALL DWELL IN BOOTHS:                    
 
[Leviticus 23:43] THAT YOUR GENERATIONS MAY KNOW THAT I MADE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL TO DWELL IN  BOOTHS, WHEN I BROUGHT THEM OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT: I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD.                    
 
The Bible says that we are commanded to keep the Feast of Succoth to remember the temporary dwelling we dwelt in when we came out of Egypt. Commentators add that an additional reason could be to tell us that everything in this world is temporary.          
Traditionally the Book of "Kohelet" (Book of Ecclesiastes) is read during Succoth.
 
Succoth is a Happy time and a time for the family.
This is an important point God wants you to do well and to be happy and to have a family. Not everyone achieves this but those who do should appreciate it. They who lack it should strive to gain it. This is the will of the Almighty. Do good and good will come unto you. This is the message of Succoth.
 
There is an additional message from Succoth that more specifically concerns the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel and we will speak of that separately.

The Brit-Am Message for Succoth 5769 no.2 Succoth and the Lost Ten Tribes
 
According to Zechariah (Zech. 14:16-19), Sukkot in the Messianic era will become a universal festival, and all nations will make pilgrimages annually to Jerusalem to celebrate the feast there.
[Zechariah 14:16] AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS, THAT EVERY ONE THAT IS LEFT OF ALL THE NATIONS WHICH CAME AGAINST JERUSALEM SHALL EVEN GO UP FROM YEAR TO YEAR TO WORSHIP THE KING, THE LORD OF HOSTS, AND TO KEEP THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES.                    
 
[Zechariah 14:17] AND IT SHALL BE, THAT WHOSO WILL NOT COME UP OF ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE EARTH UNTO JERUSALEM TO WORSHIP THE KING, THE LORD OF HOSTS, EVEN UPON THEM SHALL BE NO RAIN.                    
 
[Zechariah 14:18] AND IF THE FAMILY OF EGYPT GO NOT UP, AND COME NOT, THAT HAVE NO RAIN; THERE SHALL BE THE PLAGUE, WHEREWITH THE LORD WILL SMITE THE HEATHEN THAT COME NOT UP TO KEEP THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES.                    
 
[Zechariah 14:19] THIS SHALL BE THE PUNISHMENT OF EGYPT, AND THE PUNISHMENT OF ALL NATIONS THAT COME NOT UP TO KEEP THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES. 
 
Amos in chapter nine speaks of the Israelites in the End Times returning to their land. From the context he is referring to the Ten Tribes as well as Judah.
                 
[Amos 9:11] IN THAT DAY WILL I RAISE UP THE TABERNACLE OF DAVID THAT IS FALLEN, AND CLOSE UP THE BREACHES THEREOF; AND I WILL RAISE UP HIS RUINS, AND I WILL BUILD IT AS IN THE DAYS OF OLD: 
 
 By TABERNACLE OF DAVID (Sucat David in Hebrew, the Succah of David) he means both the Holy Temple and the Kingdom of David which will be restored. 
God wants the Temple to be rebuilt and HE wants the kingdom of David to be restored.              

The Feast of Succoth is connected to the Ten Tribes.

The Ten tribes under Jeroboam separated themselves from the Kingdom of Judah. They did not want to be ruled by Rehoboam who was the grandson of David. They rejected the House of David and chose Jeroboam instead.

It was the duty of all Israelites to go up to the Temple in Jerusalem three times a year at Festival Times to sacrifice. The Festival of Succoth was approaching and Jeroboam was afraid that if his subjects went up to Jerusalem they would regret having cast aside the Rule of Rehoboam of the House of David and want to re-unite with Judah.

Jeroboam therefore forbade the people to go up to Jerusalem. He instituted worship of golden bull-calves and instead of Succoth he made a new festival a month later.
[1-Kings 12:26] AND JEROBOAM SAID IN HIS HEART, NOW SHALL THE KINGDOM RETURN TO THE  HOUSE OF DAVID:                    
 
[1-Kings 12:27] IF THIS PEOPLE GO UP TO DO SACRIFICE IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD AT   JERUSALEM, THEN SHALL THE HEART OF THIS PEOPLE TURN AGAIN UNTO THEIR LORD, EVEN UNTO REHOBOAM KING OF JUDAH, AND THEY SHALL KILL ME, AND GO AGAIN TO REHOBOAM KING OF  JUDAH.                    
 
[1-Kings 12:28] WHEREUPON THE KING TOOK COUNSEL, AND MADE TWO CALVES OF GOLD, AND  SAID UNTO THEM, IT IS TOO MUCH FOR YOU TO GO UP TO JERUSALEM: BEHOLD THY GODS, O ISRAEL, WHICH BROUGHT THEE UP OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT.                    
 
[1-Kings 12:29] AND HE SET THE ONE IN BETHEL, AND THE OTHER PUT HE IN DAN.                    
 
[1-Kings 12:30] AND THIS THING BECAME A SIN: FOR THE PEOPLE WENT TO WORSHIP BEFORE   THE ONE, EVEN UNTO DAN.                    
 
[1-Kings 12:31] AND HE MADE AN HOUSE OF HIGH PLACES, AND MADE PRIESTS OF THE LOWEST OF THE PEOPLE, WHICH WERE NOT OF THE SONS OF LEVI.                    
 
[1-Kings 12:32] AND JEROBOAM ORDAINED A FEAST IN THE EIGHTH MONTH, ON THE FIFTEENTH DAY OF THE MONTH, LIKE UNTO THE FEAST THAT IS IN JUDAH, AND HE OFFERED UPON THE ALTAR. SO DID HE IN BETHEL, SACRIFICING UNTO THE CALVES THAT HE HAD MADE: AND HE PLACED IN  BETHEL THE PRIESTS OF THE HIGH PLACES WHICH HE HAD MADE.                    
 
[1-Kings 12:33] SO HE OFFERED UPON THE ALTAR WHICH HE HAD MADE IN BETHEL THE  FIFTEENTH DAY OF THE EIGHTH MONTH, EVEN IN THE MONTH WHICH HE HAD DEVISED OF HIS OWN  HEART; AND ORDAINED A FEAST UNTO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL: AND HE OFFERED UPON THE ALTAR, AND BURNT INCENSE. 
 
Succoth begins on the 15th day of the seventh month. Jeroboam instituted a different festival on the 15th day of the eighth month.
 
A Midrash says that Israel was exiled because they rejected the God of Israel, they did not want the Temple, and they despised the House of David.  The Midrash quotes verses that refer to the Ten Tribes. The Ten Tribes were exiled and lost their identity. They lost awareness of their Hebrew ancestry. They became the Lost Ten Tribes. The Midrash says that Israel [meaning in this case the Ten Tribes] will be redeemed when they return and seek that which they rejected: The God of Israel, the Temple, and the House of David.
The Midrash then goes on to quote from Ezekiel chapter 37 that speaks of the return of the Ten Tribes and their re-unification with Judah meaning the present-day Jews.                
[Ezekiel 37:15] THE WORD OF THE LORD CAME AGAIN UNTO ME, SAYING,                    
 
[Ezekiel 37:16] MOREOVER, THOU SON OF MAN, TAKE THEE ONE STICK, AND WRITE UPON IT, FOR JUDAH, AND FOR THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL HIS COMPANIONS: THEN TAKE ANOTHER STICK, AND WRITE UPON IT, FOR JOSEPH, THE STICK OF EPHRAIM AND FOR ALL THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL HIS COMPANIONS:                    
 
[Ezekiel 37:17] AND JOIN THEM ONE TO ANOTHER INTO ONE STICK; AND THEY SHALL BECOME ONE IN  THINE HAND.                    
 
[Ezekiel 37:18] AND WHEN THE CHILDREN OF THY PEOPLE SHALL SPEAK UNTO THEE, SAYING, WILT THOU NOT SHEW US WHAT THOU MEANEST BY THESE?                    
 
[Ezekiel 37:19] SAY UNTO THEM, THUS SAITH THE LORD GOD; BEHOLD, I WILL TAKE THE STICK OF  JOSEPH, WHICH IS IN THE HAND OF EPHRAIM, AND THE TRIBES OF ISRAEL HIS FELLOWS, AND WILL PUT THEM WITH HIM, EVEN WITH THE STICK OF JUDAH, AND MAKE THEM ONE STICK, AND THEY SHALL BE ONE IN MINE HAND.                    
 
[Ezekiel 37:20] AND THE STICKS WHEREON THOU WRITEST SHALL BE IN THINE HAND BEFORE THEIR EYES.                    
 
[Ezekiel 37:21] AND SAY UNTO THEM, THUS SAITH THE LORD GOD; BEHOLD, I WILL TAKE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL FROM AMONG THE HEATHEN, WHITHER THEY BE GONE, AND WILL GATHER THEM ON EVERY SIDE, AND BRING THEM INTO THEIR OWN LAND:                    
 
[Ezekiel 37:22] AND I WILL MAKE THEM ONE NATION IN THE LAND UPON THE MOUNTAINS OF ISRAEL; AND ONE KING SHALL BE KING TO THEM ALL: AND THEY SHALL BE NO MORE TWO NATIONS, NEITHER SHALL THEY BE DIVIDED INTO TWO KINGDOMS ANY MORE AT ALL.                    
 
[Ezekiel 37:23] NEITHER SHALL THEY DEFILE THEMSELVES ANY MORE WITH THEIR IDOLS, NOR WITH THEIR DETESTABLE THINGS, NOR WITH ANY OF THEIR TRANSGRESSIONS: BUT I WILL SAVE THEM OUT OF ALL THEIR DWELLINGPLACES, WHEREIN THEY HAVE SINNED, AND WILL CLEANSE THEM: SO SHALL THEY BE MY PEOPLE, AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD.                    
 
[Ezekiel 37:24] AND DAVID MY SERVANT SHALL BE KING OVER THEM; AND THEY ALL SHALL HAVE ONE SHEPHERD: THEY SHALL ALSO WALK IN MY JUDGMENTS, AND OBSERVE MY STATUTES, AND DO THEM.                    
 
[Ezekiel 37:25] AND THEY SHALL DWELL IN THE LAND THAT I HAVE GIVEN UNTO JACOB MY SERVANT, WHEREIN YOUR FATHERS HAVE DWELT; AND THEY SHALL DWELL THEREIN, EVEN THEY, AND THEIR CHILDREN, AND THEIR CHILDREN'S CHILDREN FOR EVER: AND MY SERVANT DAVID SHALL BE THEIR PRINCE FOR EVER.                    
 
[Ezekiel 37:26] MOREOVER I WILL MAKE A COVENANT OF PEACE WITH THEM; IT SHALL BE AN EVERLASTING COVENANT WITH THEM: AND I WILL PLACE THEM, AND MULTIPLY THEM, AND WILL SET MY SANCTUARY IN THE MIDST OF THEM FOR EVERMORE.                    
 
[Ezekiel 37:27] MY TABERNACLE ALSO SHALL BE WITH THEM: YEA, I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY  SHALL BE MY PEOPLE. 
 
The messages we should take away from all this is that God wants us to know our ancestry. HE wants the Ten Tribes to know who they are. Once this happens everything else will begin to come together. This is a beginning. This is what is needed first of all. This is what Brit-Am is doing. Brit-Am is proving to the descendants of the Ten Tribes who they are and who their ancestors are.   This is the first step. This needs to be done. Help Brit-Am to do it by helping Brit-Am.
God bless you all,
Yair Davidiy

Brit-Am Israel
