Chag Sameach

I love working at a Jewish organization. Today we had a Sukkah Party, and our Rabbi (yes, our agency has it's very own spiritual advisor) led a wonderful afternoon service/get together to celebrate Sukkot. He explained that this was the only time that G-d actually commanded us to be happy, and that after the pensive times of Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah, Sukkot was a time for happiness and get this....fertility!! Why yes it is! It's so nice to feel part of something like this, especially after 10 years of working with agencies that do Secret Santa and Easter egg hunts, but look at you like you have three eyeballs when you talk about Chanukah or Passover. There we were in the courtyard, looking at the beautiful Sukkah, and sharing the spirit of Judaism. Oh, and the sweet desserts didn't hurt either! I also heard a fantastic rumor that for our agency's Chanukah party, they have a special kosher caterer who brings in...LATKES!
