Rosh Hashanah

Coming and Going through the Gates

Rabbanit Yafit Clymer

What will be the key that will let us into the new year?


Choosing to go in or to stay out, to open doors or leave them locked is part of our human experience, physically and metaphorically. Rosh Hashana is the gate to the new year. Which is the path that leads toward it? Is it an open door? Or do we need a key? What kind of a key is it? 


Rabbanit Yafit Kleimer is a lecturer in Bible, Midrash and Jewish philosophy at Matan, Emunah, and WebYeshiva. She is a member of Beit Hillel and the Meshivat Nefesh venture, and until recently a director of Tzahali.
