Rav Moshe Taragin Neila - The Nature of a Singular Prayer Halakhot of Yom Kippur
Harav Yehuda Amital On Jewish Faith during the Holocaust According to the Tosafot (Rosh Ha-shana 16b), the three books that are open on Rosh Ha-shana deal with one’s fate in the World to Come. Nahmanides (Torat HaAdam, Shaar HaGemul), however, maintains that the judgment on Rosh Ha-shana and Yom Kippur concerns one’s fate in this world. In our prayers we say that God considers every living thing, remembering it for life or for death; on Rosh Ha-shana it is written, and on Yom Kippur it is sealed. Holiday Packages

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.
Harav Yehuda Amital “Open for Me the Gates of Righteousness” The Ne’ila service adds an additional dimension to the prayers of Yom Kippur. Here we try to respond to God’s “knocking,” to open our hearts to the “Beloved” who has “put in His hand by the latchet of the door.”
