And So It Begins... : The Prayer of Uv’Chen, Part 1

A profoundly insightful presentation about the meanings and motifs of the first major addition of High Holiday liturgy injected into the carefully structured Amidah (a.k.a. Shemoneh Esrei), “Uv’Chen.” First we frame the location of this unusual insertion; then we delve into the exceptional verbiage employed in this foundational Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur prayer. The sweeping range of this rumination incorporates colorful layers of straightforward understanding, whimsical inspiration and the deepest mysteries of Kabalah.
