Rosh HaShana: A Study in Opposites
Presented by Rabbi Michele Sullum
Monday, September 14 at 7:30 pm on Kehillah Zoom Channel

According to rabbinic tradition, Rosh HaShana is both the joyous celebration of the anniversary of creation as well as the awesome and fearsome day when God sits in judgement over humanity. How did these themes, seemingly opposite in character, mesh in the minds of the rabbis? This class will explore how the rabbinic choice to juxtapose these themes in the Rosh Hashana liturgy changed the Jewish paradigm of the relationship between God, the universe, its creatures, and humanity.
