Description

There are three (or four, or five) paragraphs which are added to every Tefillah on Rosh haShanah and Yom haKippurim during the third berakhah -"Kedushat haShem". Each paragraph begins with the word "Uvekhen" and anticipate an epoch when the whole world will recognize God as the Master of the World and will subjugate themselves to Him. It will be a day of great rejoicing for the righteous - and a complete "shutdown" of the wicked. Where do these paragraphs come from? Why were there some customs to only add them on Rosh Hashanah? Why do some communities (e.g. the Yemenite Baladi) add them in every Tefillah during Aseret Yemei Teshuvah? We explore these issues and more in this shiur, in preparation for the Yamim Noraim.
