  1. Allegorical Interpretation of the Song of Songs - DT Passover

    Today I would like to talk about lessons from the Passover story as can be learned from the Song of Songs.  First, though, I would like to give a brief introduction to the book itself.  The Song of Songs or the song of Solomon which it is also called, is one of the five scrolls read on various holidays throughout the year. The entire book is a  series of love songs in poetic form.
