Wednesday’s Work-in-Progress: Out of the Archive

Apples and honey are traditionally eaten at Rosh Hashanah to help usher in a sweet New Year.

For Jews, this is a very special time of year. As I sat in Rosh Hashanah services on Monday, and my 9-year-old niece commented on one of the more remarkable moments in the Holy Day liturgy–the Unetenah Tokef–I was reminded again of an essay I wrote many autumns ago that is grounded in that liturgy. It’s an essay I’ve shared here on the blog before. But this seems to be an appropriate time to share it again.

I hope that you enjoy it.

    This is so very worth sharing with us again and I’m glad you did so. The liturgy is stunning. And I love Austere’s comment that your piece is “Rich with the respect of ages”. Blessings to you and your family.
