¿Crees que el juicio Divino termina en #IomKipur? ¿Nunca viste gente golpeando ramas de sauce contra el piso? ¿No sabes que quiere decir #PitkaTava o #HaGuitnKvitl? Este #hilo sobre #HoshanaRaba es para vos: "#HoshanaRabbah culminando un proceso"
El año judío comienza con los temibles días de #RoshHashana y #IomKipur en los que la humanidad es juzgada por Dios en base a sus actos y se decreta lo que ocurrirá en el nuevo año. Inmediatamente después viene la festividad de #Sucot.
#Sukkot son siete días donde reina la alegría. Se abandonan las propiedades y la vida se traslada a la #suca. Todos los días de la festividad se juntan las 4 especies y se da una vuelta con ellas alrededor del rollo de la #Torá, pidiendo por a Dios por asistencia.

Thread -> Of all the festivals, #Sukkot is surely the one that speaks most powerfully to our time. #Kohelet - which we will read this #Shabbat - could almost have been written in the 21st century.
Here is the picture of ultimate success, the man who has pursued everything this world can offer from pleasure to possessions to power to wisdom. And yet, surveying the totality of his life, he can only say, in effect, “Meaningless, meaningless, everything is meaningless.”
Kohelet’s failure to find meaning is directly related to his obsession with the “I” and the “Me”: “I built for myself. I gathered for myself. I acquired for myself.” The more he pursues his desires, the emptier his life becomes.

#Sukkot is the only festival about which Tanach says that it will one day be celebrated by the whole world (Zechariah 14: 16-19). The twenty-first century is teaching us what this might mean.
For most of history, most people have experienced a universe that did not change fundamentally in their lifetimes.
But there have been rare great ages of transition: the birth of agriculture, the first cities, the dawn of civilisation, the invention of printing, and the industrial revolution. These were destabilising times, and they brought disruption in their wake.

Estamos aún en la fiesta de #pesaj pero los días ya no son festivos. ¿De que se trata entonces #Jolhamoed?

Hilo va.
En el calendario judío, los días de pueden clasificar según el grado de santidad (definir este concepto queda para otro hilo).
Si de ustedes dependiera, ¿cual dirían que es el día más santo del año?
La base de la escala son los días "comunes", llamados jol que literalmente se puede traducir como profanos o carentes de santidad.

For the record, I know nothing about astrology.
I love Astronomy!!!
I was even on the core team during the repair the Hubble Telescope while the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph (COS) which was installed during Servicing Mission 4 (STS-125) in May 2009.
Astronomy (from Greek: ἀστρονομία) is a natural science that studies celestial objects & phenomena. It applies mathematics, physics, & chemistry, in an effort to explain the origin of those objects & phenomena & their evolution. I love looking at the stars.
Objects of interest include planets, moons, stars, galaxies, & comets; the phenomena include supernova explosions, gamma ray bursts, & cosmic microwave background radiation. More generally, all phenomena that originate outside Earth's atmosphere are w/in the purview of astronomy.
