One of the themes of Rosh HaShanah is that of kingship, but what does it really mean to recognize God as my king? In this special edition of Pardes from Jerusalem for Rosh Hashana, Neima Novetsky looks to the haftarah for the first day of Rosh Hashanah, in which Channah, the mother of Samuel the prophet, gives us some tips.

Pardes is excited to share the new Pardes Companion to Yom Kippur. The Companion is a collection of articles by Pardes faculty members to help prepare and guide you through the highlights of the Yom Kippur rituals and prayer service. See www.elmad.pardes.org/ykcompanion.

Please let us know your comments and thoughts about the podcast, write to us at elmad@pardes.org.il.
