Kav Hayasher is coming out in english soon. it will now be accessible to everyone. its a fascinating sefer it has stuff on so many subjects when u read it before a holiday it gives so much more flavor to the yom tov because u understand more about it. of course u need to learn the halachas of the holidays first
