Kingship and Creation

By Ellen Bernstein

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), September 2007

Although the language of God's "Kingship" is not fashionable today, the author asserts that we need to dig beneath the surface and discover how the idea of kingship, mastery, and dominion can be meaningful to us, particularly as a primary theme of the High Holiday liturgy. For example, its intimate link to creation is particularly resonant on Rosh Hashanah, the birthday of the world.
