Obstacles to Holiday Holiness

By Richard Hirsh

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), September 2007

The author reflects on kedusha (holiness) as separateness, particularly as it relates to the sacred liturgical drama in which we participate on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. He defines kedusha as moments of insight that point to a different layer or level of reality than the spatial-temporal realm in which we go about our lives and describes four obstacles to the search for the sacred.
