Our Strength Lies in Our Weakness

Rabbi Ilai Ofran

Between house and sukkah 


Why does the Prophet describe the resurrection of Israel and its future redemption as the establishment of a fallen sukkah? Why is the place where the patriarchs built the first house in the Land of Israel called “Sukkot”? Which is the only country that succeeded in driving away the army of Alexander the Great? And what can be learned from all this about the State of Israel today?


Rabbi Ilai Ofran is the rabbi of Kvutzat Yavneh, a psychologist, and head of the pre-army academy Ruach Hassadeh.
