On Shevat 28 (134 BCE?), Antiochus V abandoned his
siege of Jerusalem and his plans for the city's destruction. This day was observed as a holiday in Hashmonean times. (Megilat Taanit)
G‑d is not understandable.
But G‑d ponders Himself.
And this mode of pondering Himself He gave to us, dressed in many stories and rituals and ways of life.
Dressed in those clothes, we unite with G‑d in His pondering of Himself.
