  1. Might contemporary changes in communal and denominational commitments forecast the dissolution — or at least the diminution — of rabbinic authority?
  2.

  3. One of the names for Rosh Hashanah is Yom HaZikaron, the Day of Memory. What is the relationship between memory and teshuvah?
  4. The liturgy for Rosh Hashanah speaks at times in the plural: “We have sinned.” What do you think about collective guilt and repentance?
