A Bitter Month

[I'm actually posting something halfway related to the ostensiable purpose of this blog. wow.]

bitter, bitter, bitter...

Why is this month called Marcheshvan?
  1. no holidays this month
  2. the flood destroyed the world
  3. Yerovam ben Nevat rebelled against the House of David
  4. Sholomo finished the Beit Ha'Mikdash and didn't dedicate it until the following Tishrei

The wonderful irony though is.... this is the month in which we can really work without interuptions and there is little sweeter than the taste of accomplishment.
