Mishna, Rosh Hashana 1:2
1 א
משנה מסכת ראש השנה פרק א משנה ב
בארבעה פרקים העולם נידון בפסח על התבואה בעצרת על פירות האילן בראש השנה כל באי העולם עוברין לפניו כבני מרון שנאמר (תהלים ל"ג) היוצר יחד לבם המבין אל כל מעשיהם ובחג נידונין על המים
At four junctures [of the year] the world is judged: at Pesach concerning the produce [grain]; at Shavuot concerning the fruit of the tree; at Rosh Hashana, all people pass before him...; and at Sukkot they are judged concerning water. [Translated by Jonathan Neril]

Suggested Discussion Questions:

1. Why do you think there a specific day for the judgment for water?

2. Sukkot comes immediately after the judgment for all people on Rosh Hashanah. What does this teach us about the relationship between our judgment as individuals and as a collective?

3. How does our behavior affect our judgment for water today?
