comment Does the Date of Sukkot Correspond to Any Particular Event?
@DanF, my question is only meant to suggest a general rule among holidays. However I would argue that commemorating these events is indeed at least one aspect of each holiday.

comment Is it heresy to read the Bible literally?
Interesting, so you're saying that perhaps R. Sacks purposely overstated this in order to emphasize that one must not read the bible literally and without the oral tradition?

But which rabbis was Rabbi Sacks referring to? Are you saying he is contradicting the Rambam?

comment Why does Jewish law and tradition specify times for saying Shema?
The mitzvah is to read it in its time. If it is not in its time, then he does not fulfill that mitzvah. Rather, as the Rambam continues, he is like someone reading from the Torah.

comment Does God benefit from our keeping of the Mitzvos?
Please see the second paragraph and onward of the maamar of the Lubavitcher Rebbe "לא תהי' משכלה" chabadlibrary.org/books/admur/tm/4/38/index.htm which brings your source, but also sources to the contrary.
