« Back to Chabad - Naples
Dear Friends,

Here we are in the midst of Sukkot, a very special holiday when "we celebrate the beauty of things that don't last”.
What exactly does that mean, and how do we do that?
For eight days we sit in a temporary hut decorated by Preschool of the Arts students and eat, celebrate, schmooze, and ponder the message of Sukkot: enjoy NOW! Life is a temporary dwelling that is full of wonderful things, but don’t hesitate, don't wait, don't take anyone or anything for granted — enjoy now!
This is an opportunity for us to shout out loud as both Ettie and I wish you all blessings! We don't take anything for granted, so I say to Hashem as I sit in the sukkah, “Thank you for my family, my extended Chabad Naples family, and the Preschool family.”
The sukkah/hut will be dismantled in eight days. The ripe fruits that adorn the sukkah will spoil if you don't eat them right away. Our friends and family may not be here as long as we wish, so Sukkot reminds us not to take for granted all the wonderful people and things that surround us each day, but to immerse ourselves in them and give thanks for being allowed to be a part of them.
With love and blessings,
Rabbi Fishel & Ettie Zaklos
