Yom Kippur

"On Rosh Hashanah it is inscribed, and on Yom Kippur it is sealed..."
The imagery on Yom Kippur that the gates of heaven are closing after being open for the past 10 days is so striking. The idea that in the final minutes of the holiday, as we stand weak from hunger and thirst, our prayers have a direct line to Gd is powerfully spiritual for me. 

We've opened a new year. Entered into a new chance at so much in our lives. What will we make of the year ahead of us, now that the doors have closed, ushering us into the future? Time will tell.

Sing Sing Kill Greenway

Up in Ossining, along the Sing Sing Kill Gorge is a recently created urban hiking trail. I had heard about it last summer after I moved back here, but it closed soon after because of damage from Hurricane Isaias. It's reopened now and is such an amazing Westchester gem. You drop into the gorge by going down this serpentine ramp and then go under the landmark "double arch bridge." Then you're in an oasis of nature, right below the hustle and bustle of downtown Ossining.
We've had so much rain this summer that the kill was running pretty steadily with water. There were signs for local wildlife to keep an eye out for, but I didn't really spot any. It's not too long of a walk and you get to go out and back, so added bonus of enjoying the scenery coming and going. I want to check it out in the fall when the leaves change color, I bet that'll be gorgeous.

20 Years

It is mind-boggling that 20 years ago on that crisp, picture-perfect September morning our world changed forever. 
Life, in so many ways, is so different from 2001, but life goes on in NY, with beautiful nods to those who died and the brave helpers around us.

Shana Tova 5782!


Another Jewish year is beginning. 
Another fresh start in our calendar.
Another strange reality. 
This year, there is a sense of normal, but not. 
This will mark my first time at in-person services since March 2020. 
May this be the start of many, positive (and safe) new beginnings. 

Shana tova!
