“The Jewish religious calendar holds together contrasting moods and ideas…The introspective solemnity of the High Holy Days is balanced by the exuberant openness to nature on Sukkoth…The Passover, expressive of freedom, leads into the Shavuoth revelation of the Law…The grieving of Yom HaShoah is followed by the celebration of the resurrection of hope on Israel’s Independence Day.”– Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis z”l
