Succat Hallel (Hebrew for Tabernacle of Praise) is a dynamic community of worshippers and intercessors from five continents drawn together to stand as watchmen on the walls of Jerusalem.
The Lord brought Rick & Patti Ridings to Jerusalem in 1999 to birth Succat Hallel. It began in their living room and grew into watches in various locations.
In November 2004 the Lord opened the door for Succat Hallel to relocate to a beautiful facility overlooking Mount Zion and the Old City of Jerusalem. Since then we have been crying out day and night 24/7 – until He makes Jerusalem a praise in all the earth.
Some have come short-term; others have made Jerusalem their home. All have the common desire to minister first unto the Lord, to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and intercede for Israel and the nations.
In Fall 2006 we opened a second, private prayer room in the City of David, the area where the original Tabernacle of David stood.
In June 2007 we held our first annual youth/young adult conference. Since 2009, this conference has been known as the ‘ELAV’ conference, which means ‘Unto Him.’
