Hidden in a Holiday

By Jan R. Uhrbach

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), September 2005

The author discusses the idea of hiddenness as a powerful gateway into the liturgy of Rosh Hashanah. She contends that the Rosh Hashanah liturgy allows us to simply stand in awe, and more than a little fear and trembling, at the mystery. The renewal, teshuvah, comes through our growing sensitivity to and treasuring that which is hidden.
