Rosh HaShanah – Two Points

The Rebbe once encapsulated the entire Rosh HaShanah into two succinct points:[1]

The idea of the entire 48 hour period of Rosh HaShanah is two points—one from below and one from above.

The point from below is that a Jew subjugates himself to G-d. He accepts upon himself the yoke of G-d’s kingship.

The point from above is that G-d—so to speak—subjugates himself to fulfil the verse (Vayikra 26:4) “I will give your rains in their time…” and the rest of the various blessings that are expressed in that section of the Torah.
