Welcoming Guests: Ushpizin / Ushpizot

Sukkot is associated with hospitality. We welcome guests into our sukkah ; we appreciate the beauty of our friends’ sukkot and the meals they serve us there. We also invite ushpizin—imaginary honored guests, traditionally in the form of iconic male biblical characters. We suggest expanding your guest list toinclude women, portrayals of Jewish heroes, or people who have taught you lessons about hospitality.
