Pomegranate from aleph to taf (A to Z)
It is said that the Torah is as full as a pomegranate. Why did the sages choose the pomegranate? Because in most types of fruit, there’s a small space full of air. The Torah, like the pomegranate, is so full of seeds there’s not even a drop of air.
To illustrate this saying, I chose to fill the pomegranate with all the letters, from aleph to taf, which are used to write the Torah.

‘Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times’; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the LORD. (Jeremiah 8, v7, King James Translation)
Each year in mid-February, the Common Swifts arrive in our area to nest. One of the nesting sites the swifts have chosen is the Western Wall. Swifts don’t nest in trees; they nest in cracks and crevices in buildings and walls. I find it moving to know that the migration pattern of these birds was observed thousands of years ago, and that when Jeremiah used this metaphor as he tried to return the People of Israel to their path, he might even have been looking at the Western Wall.

Behold, thou [art] fair, my love; behold, thou [art] fair; thou [hast] doves’ eyes. (Song of Songs, 1:15, King James Version)
This verse from the Song of Songs is a metaphor describing the love between two people. According to tradition, the sages say the Song of Songs is an allegory representing the relationship between the People of Israel and their God.
We read the Song of Songs on the Shabbat of Passover, since it describes many images of spring.

Ari-Hakadosh (Yitzhak Ben Shlomo Ashkenazi) of Tzfat wrote in his book that without this prayer, a person cannot advance to the next spiritual level.
