Day 199

During services Friday night, I wandered through the machzor, as I usually do, and came across this:

You have stayed long enough in this place, God said.
Time to go forward.
Turn your face to the future.
Believe that you can cross this sea and survive.
Inside you is a Moses; within you Miriam dances, unafraid.
Lift up your voice and sing a new song.

And that pretty much describes this year.


  1. Wandering through the machzor is a great phrase and I have definitely needed those words in the past – I’m glad they found you at the right time.
