Consummate joy extends to the feet which jump up in dance. Hold on to and be held by the Torah.
The head can’t go anywhere without feet. The skull, 466, splits to become two feet (foot = 233).
Dancing feet will take the head to a “place of understanding.” If you don’t understand – dance!
If you do (think that you) understand – dance as well, in thanksgiving. David danced with the Torah.
The two letters of the word “candle” are the initials of song and dance. A candle sings and dances.
In English, the initials of song and dance may be sad. in Hebrew they are happy – light is happy.
But the union of song and dance may allude to sod, which in Hebrew means secret. “The secret of God is to those that fear Him” = happiness.
In Hebrew, to dance also means to sift. Dancing sifts fact from fable, clarifies the truth.
In Hebrew, the root “dance” is short for “only David.” King David is the consummate dancer in joy.
“Dance” is also short for “head-skull.” In dance, the sages and great chassidim would somersault.
Figuratively, to somersault implies a complete reversal of opinions or sympathies. Don’t be afraid.
If you somersault with your hat on it will squash. Don’t worry, you can always buy a new one.
Hats are to protect your head. In war (or football) you need a helmet. In peace you can take it off.
When you take off your hat make sure a head covering remains, to remind you that God is above you.
My soul is God’s light. My body – His will. My clothing – His deeds. My home – His pleasure.
Some people hate hats. Perhaps because they think in English. Hats cats bats and rats all rhyme.
