Divre Torah relating to Chag HaSuccos go here.

i might have posted this somewhere else, but here it is again:
the schach of a sukkah should block out the sun, and also allow you to see through to the stars. we knwo that the sun is just a star, and there are stars that are brighter than the sun!

I like it, Satin! Thanks.
Just three thoughts I heard from a wonderful, amazing teacher of mine...
~ Think about the fact that the Ushpizin are coming to visit. The Avos, our leaders - great people! - are sitting there in your succah!!! (She said that she remembers when she was little "yelling" at some people - "how can you talk like that to each other in the succah?! Avraham Avinu is here!") And their kochos (strengths) are there too, and strong - Avraham Avinu is chessed, Yitzchak Avinu - gevura, etc, etc.
Mashal: There once was a king, and a daughter was born to him. The king wanted this princess to grow up to become, well, basically - the best. Refined, dignified, untainted by vulgar things, and yet, at the same time, not haughty. Educated, graceful -- to reach her full potential.
Nimshal: Hashem had the Torah, such a priceless treasure, that He wanted to give to somebody. But the other nations wouldn't take it - "it must contain bad things!" they said. "What? We can't kill/steal/lie? We don't want Your Torah!"
Have a chag sameach, everyone! I really hope you enjoy - make the most of it!

Panim, that is one of my favorite ideas, and it makes me tear up every time I say or read it. Thanks for posting it!

Does anyone know a source for the d'var Torah quoted above-- the sun and the stars?
