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.”

But I never went to bed that night, and at the end of the following day, after learning who had lived (my father, sisters, brother, nephews, and nieces) and who had died (my beloved sister-in-law and more than sixty kibbutz members), I turned to Agnon to help make sense of that which my mind could not grasp.

Against a plain background, the hashtag #SundaySentence appears.
