The Duality of Rosh Hashana (5767/2007)

September 27, 2015, by

Rosh Hashanah is not mentioned as a day of judgement in the Torah (the Rambam’s Hilchot Shofar follows this pattern as well). The Torah only discusses the mitzvah to blow the shofar. Only Chazal discuss it as a judgement day. Why is this significant component of Rosh Hashanah left out?
