Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein Shabbat Shuva The haftara “Shuva Yisrael” depicts repentance stemming from trouble and distress, as opposed to “Dirshu Hashem be-himatze’o,” which presents a superior form of repentance. Why, then, is “Shuva Yisrael” read between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur? Themes and Ideas in the Haftora
Rav Elchanan Samet Yom Kippur - “Out of the Depths Have I Called You” – Tehillim 130 Psalm 130, "A Song of Ascents. Out of the depths have I called you, O Lord," is connected according to the common practice to the days of Selichot and mercy. The Sefardi communities conclude with it their recitation of the Selichot in the month of Elul and in the Ten Days of Repentance, and according to the prevailing custom it is recited after the Yishtabach blessing during the Ten Days of Repentance, beginning on Rosh Hashana and until Yom Kippur.
Rav Michael Rosensweig Ani Le-Dodi Ve-Dodi Li: The Relationship Between God and the Jewish People Tanakh and Chazal compare the relationship between God and the Jewish People to a marriage.

What happened? I believe we can understand this if we read the mizmor as consisting not of two parts but of three.
Rav Tamir Granot Kingship and Remembrance in the Seventh Month Rosh Hashana is the day on which we declare that God is our King. Why does this day fall in the seventh month, and not the first? And how is our role on this day reflected in the special kingship verses inserted in our prayers?
Harav Yehuda Amital The Themes of Elul An excerpt from When God is Near by Harav Yehuda Amital zt"l. “Open for Me an opening the size of the eye of a needle” – that alone is sufficient – “and I will make an opening for you as wide as the entrance to the Holy Temple.”

Rav Moshe Taragin What is the State of God in Our World - Rosh Hashana 2017 Harav Amital zt"l would always speak on first day of Rosh Hashana about the presence of God in the modern world and whether it had been a good year or a bad year for His presence.
