Hashem is King

Shavua Tov and Shana Tova. The theme of Rosh Hashanah is acknowledging that Hashem is King of the Universe. It is necessary that we establish this before we can begin asking for forgiveness for our sins.

It needs to be abundantly clear that we understand our place in relationship to G-d. The prayers for Rosh Hashanah repeatedly mention that it is our sincere desire that ומלוך על כל העולם בכבודו, that Hashem reigns the world with His glory.

In today’s world, this idea is badly needed to be adopted. It is clear that in societies or philosophies that negate Hashem’s influence, they are without limits and they crumble. Belief in G-d clearly makes the world a better place. This is why we end the עלינו prayer with ביום ההוא יהיה ה׳אחד ושמו אחד. May that day come soon!
