According to the Jewish tradition, during the the Mikdash (Temple) Times, during the Hoshana Rabbah it was customary to circle the altar seven times, to strike the Arava and to draw water over the altar.
In Jewish mysticism, this day was devoted to correction, contemplation of deeds and faith, and there were various Kabbalistic customs such as the practice of observing the existence of man’s shadow.
The Hoshana Rabbah is the time of faith, the time when miracles happen.
The night of Hoshana Rabbah is a night of inspiration, renewal and other spirit. It is precisely this night when we seek to return and renew ancient spaces in a new spirit thats draw its strength from the past.
The event is part of a project aiming to expose the heritage of abandoned synagogues of Tel Aviv by bringing them back to the Israeli public consciousness and revitalizing them as centers of young Jewish/Israeli culture that will provide a renewed and fascinating perspective on ourselves, the community, the city and the Jewish identity.
The event was jointly organized by the Damascus Community in Israel and the Association of Former Residents of Damascus (Syria)
In collaboration with NaNa Disc.
The project is a part of the municipal entrepreneurship incubator – the Mazeh Social Laboratory 9 organized in cooperation with the Lower Silesian Festival of Jewish Culture in Poland @Cukunft Jewish Association and thanks to the generous support of the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation.
