Rav Moshe Taragin Neila - The Nature of a Singular Prayer Halakhot of Yom Kippur
Harav Yehuda Amital On Jewish Faith during the Holocaust According to the Tosafot (Rosh Ha-shana 16b), the three books that are open on Rosh Ha-shana deal with one’s fate in the World to Come. Nahmanides (Torat HaAdam, Shaar HaGemul), however, maintains that the judgment on Rosh Ha-shana and Yom Kippur concerns one’s fate in this world. In our prayers we say that God considers every living thing, remembering it for life or for death; on Rosh Ha-shana it is written, and on Yom Kippur it is sealed. Holiday Packages

Harav Yehuda Amital “Open for Me the Gates of Righteousness” The Ne’ila service adds an additional dimension to the prayers of Yom Kippur. Here we try to respond to God’s “knocking,” to open our hearts to the “Beloved” who has “put in His hand by the latchet of the door.”
