Succot Day 2

16th Tishri

VaYikra (Leviticus) 22:26 — 23:44

26HaShem spoke to Moshe, saying: 27When an ox or a sheep or a goat is born, it shall remain under its mother for seven days; and from the eighth day on, it is acceptable for a fire-offering to HaShem. 28But an ox or a sheep or goat, you may not slaughter it and its offspring on the same day. 29When you slaughter a feast thanksgiving-offering to HaShem, you shall slaughter it to gain favor for yourselves. 30It must be eaten on the same day, you shall not leave any of it until morning; I am HaShem. 31You shall observe My commandments and perform them; I am HaShem. 32You shall not desecrate My holy Name, rather I should be sanctified among the Children of Yisra’el; I am HaShem Who sanctifies you, 33Who took you out of the land of Egypt to be a G-d unto you; I am HaShem.

Chapter 23
1HaShem spoke to Moshe, saying: 2Speak to the Children of Yisra’el and say to them: HaShem’s appointed festivals that you are to designate as holy convocations — these are My appointed festivals. 3For six days labor may be done, and the seventh day is a complete rest, a holy convocation, you shall not do any work; it is a Shabbat for HaShem in all you dwelling places.

4These are the appointed festivals of HaShem, the holy convocations, which you shall designate in their appropriate time. 5In the first month on the fourteenth of the month in the afternoon is the time of the pesach-offering to HaShem. 6And on the fifteenth day of this month day of this month is the Festival of Matzos to HaShem; you shall eat matzos for a seven-day period. 7On the first day there shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall do no laborious work. 8You shall bring a fire-offering to HaShem for a seven-day period; on the seventh day shall be a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work.

9HaShem spoke to Moshe, saying: 10Speak to the Children of Yisra’el and say to them: When you shall enter the Land that I give you and you reap its harvest, you shall bring an Omer from you first harvest to the Kohen. 11He shall wave the Omer before HaShem to gain favor for you; on the morrow of the rest day the Kohen shall wave it. 12On the day you wave the Omer, you shall perform the service of an unblemished lamb in its first year as a burnt-offering to HaShem. 13Its meal-offering shall be two tenth-ephah of fine flour mixed with oil, a fire-offering to HaShem, a satisfying aroma; and its libation shall be wine, a quarter-hin. 14You shall not eat bread or roasted kernels or plump kernels until this very day, until you bring the offering of your G-d; it is an eternal decree for your generations in all your dwelling places.

15You shall count for yourselves — from the morrow of the rest day, from the day when you bring the Omer of the waving — seven weeks, they shall be complete. 16Until the morrow of the seventh week you shall count, fifty days; and you shall offer a new meal-offering to HaShem. 17From your dwelling places you shall bring bread that shall be waved, two loaves made of two tenth-ephah, they shall be fine flour, they shall be baked leavened; first-offerings to HaShem. 18With the bread you shall offer seven unblemished lambs in their first year, one young bull, and two rams; they shall be a burnt-offering to HaShem, with their meal-offering and their libations — a fire-offering, a satisfying aroma to HaShem. 19You shall make one he-goat as a sin-offering, and two lambs in their first year as feast peace-offerings. 20The Kohen shall wave them upon the first-offering breads as a wave-service before HaShem — upon the two sheep — they shall be holy, for HaShem and for the Kohen. 21You shall convoke on this very day — there shall be a holy convocation for yourselves — you shall do no laborious work; it is an eternal decree in your dwelling places for your generations.

22When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not remove completely the corners of your field as you reap and you shall not gather the gleanings of your harvest; for the poor and the proselyte shall you leave them; I am HaShem, your G-d.

23HaShem spoke to Moshe, saying: 24Speak to the Children of Yisra’el, saying: In the seventh month, on the first of the month, there shall be a rest day for you, a remembrance with shofar blasts, a holy convocation. 25You shall not do any laborious work, and you shall offer a fire-offering to HaShem.

26HaShem spoke to Moshe, saying: 27But on the tenth day of this seventh month it is the Day of Atonement; there shall be a holy convocation for you, and you shall afflict yourselves; you shall offer a fire-offering to HaShem. 28You shall not do any work on this very day, for it is the Day of Atonement to provide you atonement before HaShem, your G-d. 29For any soul who will not be afflicted on this very day will be cut off from its people. 30And any soul who will do any work on this very day, I will destroy that soul from among its people. 31You shall not do any work; it is an eternal decree throughout your generations in all your dwelling places. 32It is a day of complete rest for you and you shall afflict yourselves; on the ninth of the month in the evening — from evening to evening — shall you rest on your rest day.

33HaShem spoke to Moshe, saying: 34Speak to the Children of Yisra’el, saying: On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the Festival of Succot, a seven-day period for HaShem. 35On the first day is a holy convocation, you shall not do any laborious work. 36For a seven-day period you shall offer a fire-offering to HaShem; on the eighth day there shall be a holy convocation for you and you shall offer a fire-offering to HaShem, it is an assembly, you shall not do any laborious work.

37These are the appointed festivals of HaShem that you shall proclaim as holy convocations, to offer a fire-offering to HaShem: a burnt-offering and its meal-offering, a feast-offering and its libation, each day’s requirement on its day. 38Aside from HaShem’s Shabbatot, and aside from your gifts, aside from all your vows, and aside from all you free-will offerings, which you will present to HaShem.

39But on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you gather in the crop of the land, you shall celebrate HaShem’s festival for a seven-day period; the first day is a rest day and the eighth day is a rest day. 40You shall take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of a citron tree, the branches of date palms, twigs of a plaited tree, and brook willows; and you shall rejoice before HaShem, your G-d, for a seven-day period. 41You shall celebrate it as a festival for HaShem, a seven-day period in the year, an eternal decree for your generations; in the seventh month shall you celebrate it. 42You shall dwell in booths for a seven-day period; every native in Yisra’el shall dwell in booths. 43So that your generations will know that I caused the Children of Yisra’el to dwell in booths when I took them from the land of Mitzrayim (Egypt); I am HaShem, your G-d.

44And Moshe declared the appointed festivals of HaShem to the Children of Yisra’el.

BaMidbar (Numbers) 29:12 – 16
12On the fifteenth day of the seventh month, there shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall do no laborious work; you shall celebrate a festival to HaShem for a seven-day period. 13You shall offer an elevation-offering, a fire-offering, a satisfying aroma to HaShem: thirteen young bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs in their first year; they shall be unblemished. 14And their meal-offering: fine flour mixed with oil — three tenth-ephah for each bull of the thirteen bulls; two tenth-ephah for each ram of the two rams; 15and one tenth-ephah for each lamb of the fourteen lambs. 16One male of the goats for a sin-offering, aside from the continual elevation-offering with its meal-offering and its libation.
