Rabbi Shlomo Aviner

Publisher: Urim Publications


It shouldn't take more than a day to clean the whole house, including the kitchen. Anything more than that is a stringency. If we are not capable of dealing with the extra workload we decide to take on, we deplete our energy and take out our exhaustion on our families. Not only is there increased tension between husband and wife, but we show our children a very negative example by shouting at them things like: I told you not to go into this room anymore. Why did you go in?! Eat on the porch! Eat standing up! Don't touch! The whole kitchen looks like it was overturned by vandals - the husband and children are trembling in fear in some corner and eating while the mother glares at them like a drill sergeant. Is this preparation for Pesach?! Is this educating children?! No, it is a reign of terror with the mother as Pharaoh presiding.

In Moadim LeSimcha, Rabbi Shlomo Aviner fuses spiritual, scholarly and practical perspectives, and sheds light on issues central to our religious consciousness and being. As Rabbi Aviner delves into the reasons for, and the intricate and multi-faceted nature of, each Jewish festival, he reveals the warmth and richness that lies at the heart of the ancient traditions. This inspiring collection will dramatically enhance our anticipation and appreciation of each holiday, and will deepen the love of Judaism, Israel and the festivals.

Rabbi Shlomo Aviner is the best-selling author of over 50 works, ranging from philosophy to Jewish Law. He is considered to be a prominent voice on current events and topics of wide Jewish interest, and is featured in many leading newspapers and magazines across the world. A disciple of Rabbi Zvi Yehuda HaCohen Kook, he is also the Rosh Yeshiva of Ateret Kohanim and the Rabbi of Beit El. In this volume, Rabbi Aviner introduces the reader to the philosophy of Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak HaCohen Kook and uses the festivals as a springboard to discuss many aspects of Jewish philosophy.
