Rosh Hashanah Readings: Inspiration, Information and Contemplation. Rosh Hashanah Readings - Dr. Arthur Green. Rabbi arthur green, these are the words. Rabbi Dov Peretz Elkins. When we wish each other a shanah tovah, a good year, we think of the Hebrew word shanah, or year, and extend greetings for a good year.

Dov Peretz Elkins has gifted the Jewish world with many useful publications, for which we ought to be grateful. While this anthology has much that is meaningful, moving or scholarly, many of the selections strike me as filler.

I was looking for "nuggets" of insight to share with others for Rosh Hashanah and found a few. Rabbi Elkins culls thoughts and ideas from many sources (including his own mind). I could embrace about a third of them - pretty good for a curmudgeon like me.

As a convert to Judaism, I find this book invaluable. Becoming accustom to the ins and outs of a religion I have felt so intrinsically linked is wonderful. While I have my own feelings associated with both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, this books brings me to another level.

An excellent source of inspiration, prayers, supplemental readings, and guidance during the High Holy Days. Modern, as well as traditional. A good meditation.

Rosh Hashanah Readings is a very typical Jewish Lights production, presenting a variety of short passages on different topics relating to Rosh Hashanah and the High Holidays culled from a decidedly liberal side. The volume mainly contains quotes from contemporary figures in the Jewish scene. There are very few entries from Chasidic or more antiquated sources.

The volume has a charm all its own. Start reading it during the penitential month of Elul, and gradually bring yourself to Rosh Hashanah. The books is arranged that way, the passages are easier to digest in bits, and it will make the reading experience more enjoyable and meaningful than rushing through it a few days before Rosh Hashanah.

This is an excellent book particularly when you are preparing for the High Holy days but can be read at any time. It is full of readings from a wide variety of sources and includes poetry. Some readings are thought provoking others are informative and yet others are moving. There is something for everyone. I strongly recommend this book and its companion "Yom Kippur Readings". Both are excellent resources.
