When G-d tells you that He will give you anything you request, what will you ask for?
Will you ask for health, wealth, long life, wonderful children, a beautiful family?
Or will you ask for something far greater – will you ask for the King’s daughter’s hand in marriage – which will bring you everything else?
Simchat Torah is the most festive and joyous day of the year, compared to a wedding. But why is that? What is the connection between Simchat Torah and a wedding, and why do we refer to those called up to conclude and begin the Torah on this day as Chatan, “Groom” – Chatan Torah, Chatan Bereishis?
Also, what is the scriptural source for celebrating when the Torah is completed?
The answer lies in a wise dream of King Solomon and a magnificent Midrash that explains its inner meaning.
And it will transform how you look at yourself and at Torah.
