Shelter-in-Place Journal, Day 187

I posted yesterday’s entry before hearing about Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing. May her memory be for a blessing and an inspiration and a call to action. We’ve been giving to Senate candidates, both through the Get Mitch multi-candidate fund and directly to MJ Hagar in Texas, and there will be more to come.

We attended both halves of the Shir Hadash Rosh Hashanah service this morning. The Torah and Haftorah readings were live on Zoom at 9:30am; the rest of the service had been recorded earlier, mostly in and around the sanctuary (although the choir members recorded their parts at home and someone brought them together into a synchronized performance). Having the service out-of-order was yet another way in which 2020 has been an unusual year – but I was very glad to be able to see and hear it.

And beyond that, it’s mostly been a quiet day of reflection and thought.

Shana Tova.
