Fill in the Blank

Shemini Atzeret

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/torah_portion/article/fill_in_the_blank_20031017

When I began to study Torah seriously as a college student, I was introduced to its spiritual depths. I found that the meanings of the holidays went beyond the agricultural and historical sources, and often had complex spiritual teachings woven in. I remember that, back in those days, I could find little spiritual or poetic meanings of Shemini Atzeret. It was blank, or more accurately, a cipher.
