Season of Our Joy

Feast of Tabernacles - 2020



You shall hold a festival for the LORD your God seven days, in the place that the LORD will choose; for the LORD your God will bless all your crops and all your undertakings, and you shall have nothing but joy.

TNK Deuteronomy 16:15

Feast of Tabernacles

Season of Our Joy is a 'Hebrew Roots' observance of Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles. For eight days we praise YHVH through our actions - prayer, song and dance, Bible study, feasting and fellowship. We hear from gifted speakers who teach us the ways and walk of YHVH, our Father, and who teach us the meaning of this very special time of year referred to by the ancient Jewish sages as "the Season of Our JOY". 

SOOJ is held at the Camp Shiloh Retreat just a few miles from Mount Pleasant in Northeast Texas. It is observed in accordance with the traditional Jewish calendar beginning Friday evening, October 12 and continuing through Sabbath, October 10.

We welcome you to share the festival with us!

Registration Begins in the March, 2020!

As for Me and My House Logo
Festival Theme for 2019

For better than two centuries, the American culture included the belief in the God of the Bible, but our culture is quickly changing and the belief in a creator is no longer mainstream. As a result, our children have a much more difficult time balancing the 'anti god' rhetoric that is now commonplace with the Biblical basics they hear from parents and grandparents.

This year's festival theme "As for Me and My House" is based on Joshua's final dialogue with the elder's of Israel, at a time when Israel's culture was returning to polytheism and idolatry. Our theme focuses on the responsibility of parents, and specifically the fathers, to lead their household and teach their children about the God of Abraham so that when they grow older, they will not turn to the counterfiet gods "on the other side of the river".
