According to the Kabbalah, the High Holiday season is the annual experience of the cosmic matrimony between G‑d and humanity.

[The month of Cheshvan is] ‘The Ordinary Month’.

 

The honeymoon comes to an end and the excitement begins to fade. Now the marriage becomes about caring for each other and demonstrating trust and loyalty as we work through the daily grind of life.

 

Out of the twelve months in the Jewish calendar, the only one lacking a single festive day immediately follows the High Holiday season. The Hebrew month of Cheshvan is the time to build a genuine relationship with our marriage Partner in our everyday lives.

 

This is the time to discover the joy born out of a continuous relationship with G‑d.”
