Sunday Sentence

Every weekend I participate in David Abrams’s “#SundaySentence” project, sharing the best sentence I’ve read during the past week, “out of context and without commentary.”

I wanted to return to the time when we were just ordering in a restaurant, when we were organizing the Purim carnival or deciding which dessert to split, before the end of love, before death, before we were assigned to write this report on how to stay alive in our own synagogue.
