- Rosie The Magnificent by Jacob kraus (via thestarscantcomparetoyoureyes)
As I was songleading and roaming the circle during the song “Stones Under Rushing Waters”, I was looking around at the room. What I saw and the feelings that came over me are unexplainable. People were crying and the second a tear fell there was someone to reach over and hug them, people were coming together and singing as a community, and tears kept falling. The faces of my friends would look at me and smile while singing every time I went around. I was just so overcome with emotion (didn’t actually cry, gotta stay professional) but it was just one of those moments when you truly realize everything you have in front of you. Your community and how great is is. Your friends and how much you truly appreciate them being there for you. And just the moment. I cannot wait for Winter when I can songlead siyyum and just in general again. Getting everyone engaged and watching everyone just have a good time with their friends is so inspiration and I encourage you at your next kallah during siyyum or during song session to take a look around. There’s some pretty great things going on :)
Last food for a day: Matzah ball soup, brisket, kugel, latkes and Challah. Yep, I may be Jewish…. just maybe.
