On the first day, you will take for yourselves
a fruit of a beautiful tree,
palm branches, twigs of a braided tree
and brook willows, and you will rejoice
before the L-RD your G-d for seven days.

Psalm 118: 24 - 25:

24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
25 Save now, I beseech thee, O Lord: O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.

Leviticus 23: 33 - 41:

33 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
34 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the Lord.
35 On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.
36 Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein.
37 These are the feasts of the Lord, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord, a burnt offering, and a meat offering, a sacrifice, and drink offerings, every thing upon his day:
38 Beside the sabbaths of the Lord, and beside your gifts, and beside all your vows, and beside all your freewill offerings, which ye give unto the Lord.
39 Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the Lord seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath.
40 And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the Lord your God seven days.
41 And ye shall keep it a feast unto the Lord seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month.

 From the Boy Most Likely to Succeed in the Class of 1965, Frank Blechman ('65) of Northern VA - 10/04/17 - "October 02":  

I am shocked (I say SHOCKED) that you did not note that October 2nd is the greatest double birthday of the year:
Gandhi in 1869 and
Groucho in 1890

      OH, DEAR! Thank you, Frank! What COULD I have been thinking?!?

   I suppose there's nothing for it now but to watch Duck Soup (1933), A Night at the Opera (1935), Bhowani Junction (1956), and Gandhi (1982) at the earliest possible convenience!

Sisu Vesimchu

Sisu Vesimchu B'simchat Torah

Ut'nu kavod laTorah

Ki tov sachra mikol sechora

Mipaz umip'ninim yekara

Nagil venasis b'zot haTorah

Ki hi lanu oz ve'ora

Rejoice and be merry on Simchat Torah

And give honor to the Torah!

For her reward is greater than any business,

More valuable than jewels.

We shall rejoice and be merry on Simchat Torah,

For it is for us strength and light.
