Isn't there an inherent contradictionbetween the spirituality of the Holy Days and the physical pleasures of the feasts? Here's an audio interview of me explaining how not only is there no contradiction, but the festive meals and the partaking in the physical bounty are an essential tool to achieving true transcendence when done in the proper way.
