Harav Yehuda Amital A Treasury of Humility May it be God’s will that we merit a good year, a year of life and peace, a year of spiritual awakening. May we be able to stand at the gates of the “treasury of free gifts” and say to God, "We have not"; may we pray with humility. Perhaps then God will grant us a spiritual awakening, and salvation for each individual and for the nation as a whole, and inscribe and seal us and all of Israel for a good year. Holiday Packages

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.
