Vision for Israel Sukkot Celebration

Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles, is a joyful time in Israel, and Vision For Israel (VFI) will be joining the nation’s celebrations by holding its annual celebration of the holiday in downtown Jerusalem.

From Oct. 8 to 10, VFI, led by Barry and Batya Segal, will host a conference for both locals and anyone visiting from the nations who enjoy worshipping the Lord.

Joshua Aaron, MIQEDEM and teams from local congregations will provide live worship as well as the Segals themselves. Allen Jackson, Malcolm Hedding, David Herzog, Wes Richards, Sophocles Christodoulou, Barry Segal and Benjamin Siegal are some of the special speakers.

Conference organizer, Benjamin Siegal, told KNI that this year’s VFI celebration is particularly important.

“This year is a special year as it is Jerusalem’s 50th year of reunification and we entering into Israel’s 70th year Birthday,” he said. “The conference will focus on in depth teaching about God’s plan for Israel by some of today’s leading Bible teachers.”

A key scripture for the annual VFI conference is: “Then it will come about that any who are left of all the nations that went against Jerusalem will go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to celebrate the Feast of Booths.” (Zechariah 14:16.)

As KNI reported on last year’s event, participants typically attend the celebration from many nations around the world.

“We want people to join us this year, as we have a ‘dress rehearsal’ for that future feast,” Siegal said.

Siegal explained that attendees will also participate in the annual Jerusalem March that takes place in the middle of Sukkot. The march is a festive affair in which thousands of Christians join Israelis in marching through the city.

“We will be walking the streets of Jerusalem and proclaiming the good news to the people of Israel,” Siegal said.

He added that participants will be able “to connect with the local body of believers in land of Israel today and see how God is moving and building His kingdom here in Israel.”

“We are excited about celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles in Jerusalem as one new man united under God while seeing the fulfillment of God’s plan for Israel’s spiritual and physical restoration,” Siegal shared, extending an invitation to believers around the world.
