About the Month of Marcheshvan

MarCheshvan is the second month of the Jewish calendar

Souls in the Rain
As in a marriage, when the wedding-party is over, the couple's true intimate life begins. Shemini Atzeret is described as the "time of intimacy with the Divine." At this time, we ask for rain - the symbol of intimacy between heaven and earth.
The Last Jew
Where is the world’s most ordinary place? A fifteen days’ journey from Jerusalem, in a field on the banks of the Euphrates.
Is This Month Cheshvan or Marcheshvan?
Some call it “Cheshvan” and others say “Marcheshvan.” To complicate matters, on your own site, you have it both ways.
