Although all the Jewish holidays commemorate events in our national history, they are far more than mere recollections of the past. Every holiday provides us with the opportunity to relive, as well as to remember, past events. Every year, the same spiritual forces which brought about the event commemorated by a holiday are expressed again at those times. Thus the fifteenth of Nissan, the date of our exodus from Egypt, is eternally fixed as "the season of our freedom," and the tenth of Tishrei, the day on which G-d forgave the sin of the Golden Calf, is established for all time as "the Day of Atonement". The essays in these volumes are adaptations of the works of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson Shlita, which focus on the respective spiritual messages of the holidays. They endeavor to show how the historic symbolism associated with these days produces eternally relevant lessons that are applicable in our current divine service, infusing energy and vitality into our observance of the festivals.
