Project Genesis
Themes of Rosh HaShana
Speaker:   Taubes, Rabbi Michael
Series: Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur Davening: Open the Gates!
Lecture Details:  This is the first class in a series available for FREE at http://Naaleh in streaming video plus mp3 & ipod video download. In the first class of the series, Rabbi Taubes discusses the obligation for prayer. He points out that Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur as times of great need, and are therefore specifically designated as days of prayer. However, these days are also deemed as days of joy. Rabbi Taubes discusses the conflicting and complementary themes of Rosh Hashana. These themes can be learned from delving into the meaning of the names of Rosh Hashana. Rabbi Taubes then goes into the actual davening of Rosh Hashana, and explains the changes at the beginning of the Rosh Hashana davening. The class explicates the addition of 'zachrenu l'chaim' to the first bracha of Shemoneh Esrei and the expanded bracha of Hamelech Hakadosh. Rabbi Taubes continues the shiur with a discussion of the middle bracha of the Rosh Hashana davening, which summarizes the theme of the day. The shiur ends with the explanation of Rav Soloveitchik for why Psalm 24 is recited after the Rosh Hashana Amida, and the message of Psalm 27, 'l'Dovid Hashem Ori', which is recited from Rosh Chodesh Elul through Yom Kippur.
