The IDF site gives the hoped for time-table of Shalit's release. What will really happen? We'll be a lot wiser in the future.
succah in this Matan, Al HaPerek shiur/class. (Men and women can sign up for the fantastic Al HaPerek course for learning the entire Tanach, Bible.)
It's not rare for it to rain during the Succot Holiday. S'chach, the special roof, doesn't provide physical protection. In many parts of the world it ends up physically impossible to eat in the succah. It's rainy, stormy and even snowing. Even here in Shiloh, we've had years when our s'chach has blown away, although our succah walls have stayed standing.
Good intentions aren't always sufficient for keeping the mitzvah of Succot. And good intentions in terms of freeing Gilad Shalit won't guarantee that his promised/hoped for return home will go as planned. And good intentions by the government won't guarantee us security and safety from the released terrorists.
This agreement to free Gilad Shalit is like a flimsy succah built on a cliff... or just a fake.
