A Jewish festival is not a commemoration of a long ago event- it's an opportunity to experience the awesome spiritual power that was unleashed upon that day. Each festival is a gift; allowing us to dip into a well of spirituality and come up refreshed and invigorated.
In "Festivals of Life," Rabbi Zev Leff, consummate educator and internationally renowned lecturer, shifts our focus from the external trappings of the day to their inner meaning. He helps us access the hidden dimension of our festivals and emerge closer to our Creator. Explore the many facets of our moadim: Discover how Rosh Chodesh and the moon teach us critical lessons about our nation's purpose on this earth.
See how Succos synthesizes the messages of Pesach and Shavuos and why that leads to joy.
Appreciate the intrinsic connection between Tu BiShvat and Tu B'Av and how they prepare us for the days following.
Understand what sefiras haomer teaches us about utilizing potential, and why thatn++s the essential prerequisite for accepting the Torah.
Learn how Tisha B'Av prepares us for Yom Kippur, and ultimately, for Mashiach.
Joyful days and tragic ones, week-long festivals and minor ones, all are explored in this invaluable book. What emerges is a breathtaking tapestry of the Jewish year, a far-reaching look at how the festivals intertwine, each building upon the lessons of the previous ones.
