This Week's Torah Thought

Torah Portion: Chol HaMoeid Sukkot |חול המועד סכות

The Book of Ecclesiastes is traditionally read during Sukkot, tempering the joyous celebrations of Sukkot and Simchat Torah with a sobering reminder of the ephemeral nature of our existence. The opening Hebrew words, "Havel havelim," are famously translated as "vanity of vanities," but a more precise rendering might be, "the fleeting fog of a warm breath on a chilly morn."  Ecclesiastes teaches us that this life is but fleeting; we are here one minute, gone the next. It is up to us to make the most of our short time here, to help perfect God's glorious creation while we can. 

Shabbat Shalom and Chag Sameach!
