Bring on the rain!


"Rabbi Akiva said: The Torah says, 'Bring a measure of barley on Pesach' at the time of barley, so that the grain will be blessed. 'Bring the first wheat on Shavuot' at the time of trees, so that the fruit of trees will be blessed. 'Bring water libations on Succot' so that the rains will be blessed. 'And regarding any from the families of the land who do not ascend to Jerusalem to bow to the King, the Lord of hosts, the rain will not fall upon them. (Zecharyah 14)'

(Tosefta Succah 3:18)

Have a great Yom Tov,
