|The sages taught, “The sending of rain is an event greater than the giving of Torah. Torah was a joy for Israel only, but rain gives joy to the entire world…”
When Sukkoth begins, so do our prayers for rain in Israel. These prayers have been recited for centuries. Our prayers extend to all places in need of rain. “Mashiv ha-ruach u’morid ha-gashem” – May the Source of Wind and Rain send rain to replenish the land and our souls. And may we use our resources wisely.
