Prof. Yoel Elitzur (Parashat Vayelekh/Shabbat Shuva): Sukka, Redemption and the Talmudic Principle “You Shall Make But Not From That Which is Already Made” By analyzing the texts, how can we come to a deeper understanding of an ancient question that is still perennially relevant for the Jewish people on Shabbat Shuva: If we never repent properly, is the redemption that was promised still guaranteed?

Harav Yehuda Amital A Treasury of Humility May it be God’s will that we merit a good year, a year of life and peace, a year of spiritual awakening. May we be able to stand at the gates of the “treasury of free gifts” and say to God, "We have not"; may we pray with humility. Perhaps then God will grant us a spiritual awakening, and salvation for each individual and for the nation as a whole, and inscribe and seal us and all of Israel for a good year. Holiday Packages

Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein Chana's Distress and Remembrance: The Haftara of the First Day of Rosh Hashana The haftara for the first day of Rosh Hashana (I Shemuel 1:1-2:10) is the account of God's remembering Chana, allowing her to have a child – which according to Chazal (Rosh Hashana 11a) took place on Rosh Hashana) – and Chana's prayer in the wake of Shemuel's birth and weaning. Each of these factors is a good and sufficient reason to read this haftara on Rosh Hashana, though the primary factor seems to be God's remembering of Chana, as argued by Rashi, and this will be the focus of our study.
