High Holy Days rehearsals have been completed. The beginning is really here.
In which I talk about chanting Torah, singing, life, you name it. This blog is a writing exercise to help me organize my thoughts.

1013. #BlogElul 23: Begin
As I write this, I'm drinking wonderful coffee and hoping it does its magic so I can wake up after a late night of Selihot. This is the beginning. We studied prayers, we sang beautiful piyutim, we listened, for the first time this season, to the melody that will bookmark each service and help set this time apart from ordinary time. I sang loudly and with complete abandon some songs that I will be singing into a mic over the coming days, a very different experience—equally intense and meaningful, but by necessity more measured.
