According to some, the first Mitzvah after Yom Kippur should be…putting the first nail into the Sukkah.  Rabbi Shlomo Riskin teaches that “on Sukkot our desires [“to dwell in the House of the Holy One” Psalm 27:4] are answered.  In effect, G-d is the bridegroom and we, the Jewish people are the bride called upon to enter [the Chuppah-like Sukkah] and the bridegroom’s home…”  So, song, starlight and celebration is in order – sip some sweet wine and add to our night of song and story in our continuing romance with the Spiritual Source.  If you have an instrument, song, story, soup, salad, side-dish, sangria, or sweet friend, bring along!
