Rosh Hashanah 101

Theology and Themes

This is the time of year during which we are to atone for both our individual--and on Yom Kippur, our communal--sins committed over the course of the previous year, before God literally closes the books on us and inscribes our fates for the coming year. God's rule over humanity and our need to serve God are stressed time and again over the course of the holiday.
