Rosh Hashanah Liturgical Themes
The focus is on God, humanity, and the relationship between the two.
Judgment, as we have seen, stems from the idea that Rosh Hashanah is the time of God's remembrance, when God fulfills His word and remembers us for good. Throughout the Mahzor [holiday prayer book],these themes repeat themselves, reminding us that we live in a created world, under the sovereignty of a God who cares for us and holds us responsible for our actions.
