Congregations Consider Women's Infertility on Rosh Hashanah
As congregations celebrate the first of the Jewish High Holy Days on Thursday, many will hear the heartbreaking story of Hannah, a barren wife whose prayers are answered when she gives birth to a son, Samuel. Grateful for God's blessing, Hannah promises her son to the priesthood. Samuel grows up to become a great prophet and pivotal figure in biblical history who restores law, order and worship to Israel.
