These Rosh Hashanah Gems are filled with new, inspiring material that explain and elucidate many of the prayers we say on this holiday. They are intended to both entertain and educate the audience between prayers.
Vignettes include: The tale of the Evil Inclination in disguise; a man’s life-changing advice; the Rebbe as the geologist of the soul; a true and moving event on the Titanic and why it was excluded from the movie version; a story about one of the most famous paintings in the world and what it tells us about our soul; the myth about moderation; The Queen’s conversation with Disraeli about how Judaism fills life with beauty; the Talmud’s tale about spilled years; why forgiveness is like hitting the Delete Key; the broker who went broke; and how life is like an hourglass.
These mini-sermons are intended to both entertain and educate the audience between prayers. They are rich with Jewish wisdom, wit and joy, and will help bring greater meaning to both committed Jews and casual congregants.
