Over the summer Etz Chayim (Palo Alto, California) had a Simon & Garfunkel themed Shabbat Service. We started the service with a very soulful reading of “I Am A Rock” while a guitar playing softly in the background. This cello version with vocals was simply amazing and brought me back to that service.

During this year so many of us find ourselves in the bizarre solitariness of prayer in front of our Zoom congregations.
Denah S Bookstein
01:05:30
challenging at best. praying near water helps.
Denah S Bookstein
01:08:26
we’re not meant to be on stage, looking at each other., when in prayer ...
Ed Grossman
01:08:33
Music can be the prayer in which the musician moves and we can remain still (and be moved).

Nachama/Chumi Kanner
01:13:09

It would be lovely to think that at least nature was something to depend on but having children and grandchildren who can’t even go outside because of the poor air quality and definite signs of climate change, we can’t even look for nature to be normal.
Rhea Dorn
