Shabbat Chol Hamoed Sukkot

Luvav and etrog

Vanities of vanities, all is vanities (hevel).

Shabbat Shalom. We are in the “intermediate” days of Sukkot and when Shabbat falls during Sukkot it is known as Shabbat Chol Hamoed Sukkot, one of the special Sabbaths. It is customary for Ecclesiastes to be read on this Shabbat, presented as being the autobiography of the Teacher Koheleth.
