Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, Rosh Hashana

One of the themes of Rosh HaShana 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 Hashana, in which Channah, the mother of Samuel the prophet, gives us some tips.
