On Isru Chag, tie one on!


“One who ties [an extra day] on to the holiday with special eating and drinking is considered as though he had built an altar and brought an offering on it, as it is written, ‘Tie a celebratory offering [‘chag’, which can also mean ‘holiday’] with branches to the corners of the altar.’”

(Talmud, Succah 45b)

Happy Isru Chag,
