    Rabbi Mordechai Fachler's insights into the Yamim Noraim are captured in this first written collection of his sermons. Each year, addressing hundreds of congregants, he would explore a central theme that he meticulously developed from Rosh Hashanah through Shemini Atzeret. His superb oratory, infectious warmth, and zealous enthusiasm for the subject matter captivated audiences, taking them on a journey of discovery and appreciation of G-d's beauty everywhere. His sermons taught them to feel G-d's love and perceive His oneness in a multi-colored rainbow world. These ideas proved mentally stimulating and spiritually satisfying, inspiring the listeners to become better Jews and more sensitive human beings.
