I’ve been trying to get a better handle on what being Jewish means to me over the last few years, and as a consequence I decided to go to temple today for the first time in many years. This is temple B’nai Brith in Somerville – to my knowledge the only temple in town. I got there early to avoid the crowds, and left once it got really crowded after the torah reading. I don’t really think the experience is going to turn me into a temple-goer, but I might go back for yom kippur next week, we’ll see.
In any case, shana tova to all of you – here’s to a new year of life, happiness and peace.
