The personal gate of honoring the memory of those who have died is especially compelling this year. To experience so much loss can leave us stunned in silence, feeling empty and alone. Our tradition wisely gives us the opportunity to express our sorrow in community through liturgy, chant, and the sharing of stories. We welcome this tribute to our loved ones and affirmation of the power and poignancy of remembering.
The gates are closing. Have we done the necessary work of teshuvah? Are we ready to return to an ethical purposeful life and engage in righteous restorative work? Our final prayers and reflections together will build to an exuberant release of energy, our ecstatic “Yes!” Together, we can meet the challenges and opportunities of this New Year!
