A series of essays that begins with the idea that when the High Holiday prayers refer to "all believe", the prayer book intends a universal message of the holidays. Whether this is accurate or not, it serves as the jumping off point for discussions of universalism and particularism throughout the machzor, throughout prayer and in Jewish life in general. The essays are uneven in their approach and sometimes in their quality. Authors are from a range of Jewish approaches.
