Pandemic Journal, Day 538

Rosh Hashanah started tonight – happy 5782! Our friends hosted pre-service dinner (yummy!) this evening – they timed it so that we’d be able to get home in time for the start of the service.

We had to watch from home, unfortunately, but unlike last year, it was live, with the clergy and choir in the Sanctuary (and they are all vaccinated, masked, and tested negative for Covid-19 twice in the last 24 hours). Having people in the Sanctuary made a big difference in the way the service felt to me compared to last year – it was much more real.

Shana Tova – may we all be inscribed for a good year.
