Ketivah v’chatima tovah....

Outrage is warranted. But outrage unaccompanied by analysis is a danger in itself.

Indeed! May we all warrant a good inscription in the Book of Life for 5781.

And for the entire planet which needs renewal, salvation and redemption.

Too bad Justice Ginsburg couldn't have joined us a little longer.

The words that always frighten me and represent the uncertainties of our future...

quote:
On Rosh Hashanah it is inscribed,

And on Yom Kippur it is sealed.

How many shall pass away and how many shall be born,

Who shall live and who shall die,

Who shall reach the end of his days and who shall not,

Who shall perish by water and who by fire,

Who by sword and who by wild beast,

Who by famine and who by thirst,

Who by earthquake and who by plague,

Who by strangulation and who by stoning,

Who shall have rest and who shall wander,

Who shall be at peace and who shall be pursued,

Who shall be at rest and who shall be tormented,

Who shall be exalted and who shall be brought low,

Who shall become rich and who shall be impoverished.

But repentance, prayer and righteousness avert the severe decree.


Excerpt from the Netaneh Tokef Prayer
quote:
בראש השנה יכתבון
ובצום יום כיפור יחתמון:
כמה יעברון וכמה יבראון
מי יחיה ומי ימות
מי בקצו ומי לא בקצו
מי במים ומי באש
מי בחרב ומי בחיה
מי ברעש ומי במגיפה
מי ינוח ומי ינוע
מי יישקט ומי ייטרף
מי ישלו ומי יתייסר
מי ירום ומי יישפל
מי ייעשר ומי יעני:
ותשובה ותפילה וצדקה
מעבירין את רוע הגזירה!

Agreed, Amanda. If those words don't provoke some sort of inner reflection, then I don't know what will.

I read that people who pass on the first night of Rosh Hashanah, as RBG did, are considered to be exceptionally righteous. I don't know if that's true, but I have no problem with that being attributed to RBG.

G'mar Hatimah Tovah

Every year I look for a different version of Kol Nidre . Here's my selection for this year:
