A companion volume to Gold from the Land of Israel , this book presents Rabbi Abraham Isaac HaKohen Kook's thoughts on Shabbat and Jewish holidays in a clear, succinct style. Among the questions addressed in this compilation of Rabbi Kook's teaching are Why are Jews instructed to drink on Purim? What is the role of art and literature? Why is there a need for both an oral and written Torah? Why is Chanukah not celebrated with a festive meal? and Why is the Temple so important? The writings of the celebrated first Chief Rabbi of pre-state Israel -- often difficult to absorb for their poetic and mystical nature -- are accessibly presented in this offering.
