G'mar chatima tova and an easy fast to those who will be fasting!

May we all be inscribed and sealed for a good year. And anyone fasting, may you have an easy and meaningful fast.

May our tiny crew here (and all over the earth) find the strength to deal with rising antisemitism and hopefully find strength in each other too!

1. May you be inscribed in the Book of Life.

It would be nice to have a little support and solidarity.

2. Thank you and sweet new year to you and all. Just checking in here after the long day to say I hope

everyone had an easy and meaningful fast. Wish mine was free of family drama, but felt blessed to have had the most connected day ever with one of my nephews, who's 20. I loved the rabbi's sermon this morning, too, about Reb Nachman's exhortation to keep moving forward when fearful, rather than being immobilized. "The whole world's a narrow bridge" or tightrope. If we just stand on it without moving forward we'll never become what we might. She tied in the election season, clearly a dem...

5. Ha! So true, I suppose. Still, on Yom Kippur of all days you just want peace and goodness to

predominate. But then again part of the message: be your best self even when it's the hardest to do so.... Strife tests us in that commitment.

Fear is so complex, I'm only just starting to get in touch with my own more subtle fears, reading, reading ... have been blessed to have felt it pretty rarely before, now seeing that it's a lurker emotion... as a cause of procrastination, for example.

4. What's yuntiff without family drama?

I'm kidding. Family drama is exhausting. The Breslov rebbe had some amazing teachings!
