“REJOICE ON YOUR FESTIVAL!” (DEVARIM – DEUTERONOMY – PARSHAS RE’EH 16:V. 14)
The Festival of Succos, Shemini Atzeres and Simchas Torah,
which are the Season of our Rejoicing, are not intended to
bring true joy and inspiration only during these days, and when they are over they are forgotten. But their purpose and intent is that the Jew should draw from them stores of joy and inspiration to last him throughout the year and every day of the year. The nature of such joy and inspiration, being connected with the Torah and mitzvos, is such that it truly permeates one’s whole being and is the wellspring of a harmonious and happy Jewish life. (Excerpt from a letter written by the Rebbe on 25th of Tishrei, 5721)
