Track: Rosh HaShana
Unetaneh Tokef is one of the key payers on Rosh Hashanah/Yom Kippur. There is a famous legend that its author, Amnon of Mainz, composed it in the Middle Ages as expiation for his sin of considering conversion. But there never was a Rabbi Amnon, and the text can be traced back to the Talmud. Who really wrote it, and what is its real connection to Christian belief?
