I tend to believe that the rotation of biblical holy days is significant, and that the fall holy days are more significant than the spring holy days because they point to a time to come, and the order of that coming. Many disagree, but c’est la vie, I go on my merry way.
So, I ask: Why is Rosh HaShannah before Yom Kippur, and Yom Kippur before Sukkot, and why do they end with Shemini Atzeret?
One sage says this, another sage says that, yet another sage says the other. All this mystery! Could it be that a very few elect know, but the rest of us must wait for the revelation?
Oh well. Shabbat Shalom!
