L'Shana Tovah

(a little late, but...)

May you all be inscribed in the Book of Life for a very good year.

We had a lovely family Rosh Hashana -- the highlight was the children's service early in the morning at Temple Micah, which managed to hit the essential structure of the Rosh Hashana service (call to prayer, torah reading, shofar, etc) in fifteen minutes while amusing and delighting a crowd of one-to-twelve year olds -- a marvel of conciseness and clarity, flourishing amidst and feeding off the chaos and noise of lots of kids being kids -- the best part of which was singing "Happy Birthday To You, Happy Birthday To You, Happy Birthday Dear World, Happy Birthday To You." After which, there was cake.

Aviva, however, sang "Happy Birthday Dear Round" instead.

"Why?" I asked.

"Because the world is round," she said.
