Welcoming Ushpizot with Ushpizin

By Kolot

According to the 13th-century, mystical Sefer Hazohar (The Book of Splendor):

“When you sit in the sukkah, the ‘canopy of faith,’ the Shekhinah, the Divine Presence, spreads Her wings over you … and ushpizin (righteous guests) join you as well. Rejoice each and every day of the festival together with these honored guests …”

The revived tradition is to invite the ushpizot: Sarah, Miriam Deborah, Avigail, Hannah, Huldah, and Esther along with the traditional ushpizin: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Aaron, and David to join you each night under your sukkah.

May your sukkah be filled with honored friends, beloved family, righteous guests, rejoicing, and peace.
