Spring Is Here

http://www.jewishjournal.com/kids_and_teens/article/spring_is_here_20020329

On this Shabbat, hol ha'moed Pesach, we read a beautiful story called "The Song of Songs." It is attributed to King Solomon, and the rabbis interpret the love story that takes place between the girl and the boy in the poem as Solomon's love for God and of God's love for the Jewish people.

The story/poem takes place in the spring, when flowers are blossoming, fruits are ripening and the sweet fragrance of jasmine is everywhere. Pesach is a time of new beginnings, and so is spring. The world is being reborn.
