Why is the Succot Holiday called the "Joyful" one? ושמחת בחגךThe other day, while walking outside in Shiloh and wondering when Gd will bless us with cleansing and health-producing, also necessary for agriculture rain, I noticed the grapes. OK, I didn't need to go very far to see grapes, since we have a few vines by our house.
The grapes are rather dusty, and some are dried out, eaten by birds, bees etc. And the leaves are awfully brown and ripped. But there are still grapes for humans to feast on.
