Overview

Moments of Transcendence: Inspirational Readings for Rosh Hashanah is designed to renew the meaning of the High Holy Day themes of sin, repentance, personal change, societal justice, forgiveness, spiritual growth, living with joy and hope, commitment to high ideals, and savoring the divine gift of life. The modern worshiper is often at a loss to penetrate the meaning of the medieval poems collected in the High Holy Day prayer book, the Mahzor. During most Jewish High Holy Day services, worshipers are inspired by the rabbi's sermon, the beautiful music of the cantor or the choir, and the penetrating blast of the shofar. Unfortunately, the profound message of how we avoid today's litany of "sins" rarely gets through to the heart of the worshiper.
