"I'm so disappointed !! There was no chopped liver at that wedding tonight !!"

In our prayers we refer to Pesach as the time of "our freedom", Shavuos as the time of "receiving the Torah" and Succos as the time of "our happiness". Some commentaries explain that the reason we read Koheles (Ecclesiastes) whose theme is the vanity of worldly pleasures, on Succos, is to teach us that true happiness comes with a proper perspective of life...

On Succos, even though we live in temporary dwellings which aren't as comfortable as our homes, if we learn the lessons of Koheles, we can find true happiness!!

Have a happy Succos !!
