Hoshana Rabbah - To Live in a Pleasant World
This shiur, delivered at the Yeshivat HaKotel Hoshana Rabbah program, begins with three questions: 1. What's the inner nature of Hoshana Rabbah such that it has the capacity to override the psak of Yom Kippur? 2. Why does the war of Gog and Magog take place on Hoshana Rabbah? 3. What's the connection between Dovid HaMelech (the Ushpizin of the night) and Hoshana Rabbah? In this shiur Rav Burg explains how music represents the mergjng of the spiritual and the physical. Though they don't naturally go together, it is possible to synthesize the two. This is the meaning of the pleasantness of Torah and Olam Haba which are both called Noam.
