Thread -> Of all the festivals, #Sukkot is surely the one that speaks most powerfully to our time. #Kohelet - which we will read this #Shabbat - could almost have been written in the 21st century.
Here is the picture of ultimate success, the man who has pursued everything this world can offer from pleasure to possessions to power to wisdom. And yet, surveying the totality of his life, he can only say, in effect, “Meaningless, meaningless, everything is meaningless.”
Kohelet’s failure to find meaning is directly related to his obsession with the “I” and the “Me”: “I built for myself. I gathered for myself. I acquired for myself.” The more he pursues his desires, the emptier his life becomes.
