The second day of Rosh HaShanah


"Even people who live in Israel celebrate two days of Rosh HaShanah, for due to Gd's love for His nation, and due to His desire to judge them mercifully, He granted them the opportunity to establish an added day of judgment, on which they would be judged more gently."

[This is from a summation at the end of a long article, which includes various sources to support the author's contention regarding the difference between the judgments of the two days of Rosh haShanah.]

(Rabbi Moshe Shwerd, HaMaor 60:3 (2007))

Have a great day,
