Shir Ha-Ma'alot #13

Rise up and come - addition for festivals

On the festivals, our remembrances especially arise: remembrance of the Temple and the Messiah son of David. Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzato explained that if a spiritual deficiency was corrected in the world, when that time of the year arrives, a light - like the original - shines on us and the effect of the repair will be renewed in one who accepts it. The Netziv similarly wrote that anything that was created in the world, one of its fundamental features is the time in which it was created. Even after many generations, when this time of the year arrives, it strengthens and enhances the power of that creation (Ha-Emek Davar, Shemot 2:2).
