Description

Simcha, joy, is a key Jewish concept - throughout our lives, on the festivals, and especially on Sukkot. We study the Rambam's presentation of simcha throughout Mishneh Torah and explore an apparent contradiction between whether simcha is a 'middle path' attribute - balanced and controlled - or an overwhelming, all-encompassing experience.
