This class continues our profound analysis of the opening High Holiday liturgical insertion into the Amidah structure. We now examine the second Uv’Chen, which further sets the tone of the special prayerful formula that heralds the new year. Our initial point of departure focuses on the anomaly of petitioning for a better future by “praying for fear!” Initial investigation indicates early biblical origins, yet thorough examination suggests otherwise. Through the portal of a mystical teaching, the puzzle comes together in stunning color.
