Special Days of Joy

A young boy celebrates the Simchas Beis HaSho’eivah in the time of the Second Temple
A historical adventure, including Hakhel, nisuch ha-mayim, and the korbanos of Sukkos

Naftali’s eyes grew dreamy. “These days are so beautiful!” he thought. “I’ll get to participate in Hakhel and watch the Kohanim bring the Sukkos korbanos and do nisuch ha-mayim. I’ll hear the magnificent singing of the Leviyim and watch the Kohanim working so speedily. I’ll even see torches being juggled at the Simchas Beis HaSho’eivah! And during all these days, I’ll sit in the sukkah, under the wings of Hashem’s Shechinah! What could be better?”

Naftali can’t wait to experience the Festival of Sukkos around the Beis HaMikdash. Little does he know that a surprise lies ahead which will change his entire life. What is the secret of the four ancient goblets? Who escaped to the island of Rhodes and why? And what does all this have to do with the long-lost tune of the Leviyim?

Join the adventure with Naftali, Reb Asher, Julius, and Deimos, for thirty consecutive hours of joy and celebration in the heavenly city of Yerushalayim. Hear the king read from the Torah in the Ezras Nashim; walk in the procession to the Shiloach Spring before daybreak; and watch the singing and dancing at the Simchas Beis HaSho’eivah in all its glory.
