Shmini Atzeret


"On all of the days of Succot the Jews bring [70] offerings, parallel to the 70 nations. They then prepare to leave. Gd says to them, 'Please, make Me a small meal, so that I will benefit from you, too.'"

(Midrash Tanchuma Pinchas 16 - explaining the holiday of Shmini Atzeret with its single bull-offering to Gd)

Moadim l'Simchah,
