The goal of a Jewish holiday


"The Mo'adim [times of celebration] interrupt the ordinary activities of our life and give us spirit, power and consecration for the future by revivifying those ideas upon which our whole life is based, or they eradicate such evil consequences of past activity as are deadly to body and spirit, and thus restore to us lost purity and the hope of blessing."

(R' Samson Raphael Hirsch, Horeb, paragraph 162)

Have a great day,
