Re'eh – Cessation at seven

Why are the festivals all connected to the number seven? What is their connection to the seven of Shabbos? What is the special idea of simcha, joy, in this context? What is the connection to Elul, the loving relationship of the Jewish people with Hashem and the lead up to this joy? How does one access this joy in his life, his service of Hashem and prayer?

Find out in this week’s Parsha Podcast.

    Thank you! This helped me get into the right Elul mode minus the drag.
