When the holiday videos start to arrive, we're sure that the boys of Boys Town Jerusalem are busy singing and creating their musical contribution to the yom tov spirit. We have posted their videos for Passover, Rosh Hashana, and Chanukah.
This year Boys Town Jerusalem has put together a special Sukkot Song - Vesamachta Bechagecha (Be happy on your holidays).
On this holiday we leave the comfort and security of our homes and go into the sukkah, showing our faith in God for protection and sustenance.
In Jerusalem this week, we see the sukkot going up on every street and on the sidewalks next to the restaurants that are constructing them for the convenience of their customers.
Established in 1948, Boys Town Jerusalem has become one of the country's largest and most respected educational institutions since its establishment in 1948 to provide a home and education for young immigrants to the newly-created State of Israel.
We hope you enjoy the video. We'll be in shul tomorrow for the first day of Sukkot in Jerusalem and we'll be back with more Jewish humor on Wednesday.
