Question: What does a holiday mean from the perspective of Kabbalah?
Answer: According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, there are various levels of the Light that come down upon us. Their intensity determines a special state called a holiday.
“Holiday” in Hebrew is called “Hag” from the word “Mehuga” (arrow), which constantly turns, repeating its circles. In other words, a holiday is something that repeats from year to year. However, it repeats in such a way that at that time a certain Light comes down and brings everyone under it into a special state.
Thus, in the spiritual world, you may exist in the state of “New Year” while I am in the state of “Pesach” (Passover). In addition, one does not interfere with the other. For you, it is one state; for me, it is a different one. Everyone has his own time and his own levels.
