Behold on the Day we Celebrated the Harvest Holiday

"Our Cultural Work", "From Within" 1, 18 Elul 1925

Behold on the day we celebrated the harvest holiday... just in front of the gate adorned with greenery at the opening of the cave lit up with candles... where you listened attentively to the swishing of the water as the girls came drawing from the well. You could imagine, for a moment that a congregation of worshipers of stars and heavenly bodies and are uniting here with their Gods...But only for a moment, of course...

Since above us there are no stars and heavenly bodies, and the G-d that we shall unite with in public is lost to us.
