  1. Rabbi David Ellenson, Ph.D.

    ROSH HASHANAH READINGS provides a treasure-trove of reflections, narratives, and meditations relating to the themes of the High Holidays. It will surely be used as a resource by clergy and laypersons alike as they prepare for public services. Yet, the reader will find it an invaluable work for personal reflection and quiet contemplation. I recommend it highly to laypersons and clergy alike as they observe the Jewish New Year.

  2. Rabbi Elliot N. Dorff, Ph.D.

    This is a truly marvelous collection of reflections for Elul, Rosh Hashanah, and their liturgies. True to its subtitle, the readings in this book do indeed provide inspiriation, information, and contemplation — and plenty of it. Despite close to sixty years of experience with Rosh Hashanah, I learned and felt things in reading this book that I have never known or felt before — and you will too!
