Ushpizin

There is a Jewish  tradition that reminds us to invite in a different patriarch and matriarch into our Sukkah every night.

Traditionally, the guests include Avraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Aaron, and David.

As we move toward our  egalitarian vision, we include Sarah, Rachel, Rebecca, Leah, Miriam, Abigail, and Esther.

Your task for this page of the blog is to add your answer to the following question:

If I could invite anyone, living or deceased, into my sukkah for one night, who would be, and what would we discuss?

( For an extra challenge, see if you can invite someone who has a connection to water!)

Ex. ” I would invite my Grandfather, because he taught me how to swim!  I would discuss his love of fishing, which he could talk about for hours!”

    I think I would invite Rabbi Shlomo Carlibach , because he inspired a generation through his teachings and music, and that inspiration is still felt today.
