  1. How do you make each Rosh Hashana new? How do you infuse the holiday prayers with a newness that captivates your attention?
  2. Al cheyt is the communal recitation, the litany that begins, “We have sinned…” Why do we recite this prayer in the plural? What is today’s greatest sin?
  3. What is the tension running through the High Holiday liturgy between private, individual prayer and communal prayer?
  4. How do we, as Jews, balance our historic support of civil liberties (privacy) with our sense of caution as the world becomes more threatening?
