The story of Hannah is the Haftorah of Rosh Hashana. Her prayer is understood by the rabbinic tradition to be a classical paradigm of prayer. We will examine the specifics of her two prayers, both in relationship to Rosh Hashana and in relationship to prayer more generally, in an attempt to broaden our understanding of prayer and its possibilities.
