What makes you happy? What brings you lasting joy? Maybe it’s having a comfortable lifestyle. Or being surrounded by friends and family. For some, it’s the material things we have that we think make us most happy.

Host Yael Eckstein explores the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, the Feast of the Tabernacles, which commemorates that time when the Israelites journeyed out of slavery from Egypt and lived in the desert in flimsy huts, exposed and vulnerable, relying solely on God’s protection and blessings. The spiritual message for us? When we step out of our comfort zone, we step into opportunities that can bring us tremendous joy, including the greatest joy of all — feeling God’s abundant love and complete protection.
