Tonight is the Kol Nidre service, the beginning of Yom Kippur. A time to focus completely and intensely on our relationship with God. To try to make that connection so that we can know that - everything is...in order, as it should be, taken care of, cleansed for next year.
There is one part of the musaf for Rosh HaShanah where I use a melody from the show Les Miserables. For me, the song "Bring Him Home" fits these days of awe perfectly. It is a plea to God, to remember us, acknowledge us, and an acceptance of our own life and death. It expresses the hope for the next generation and what it means to be fruitful. It is a commentary on what "home" means. It is what I'll be thinking about on Yom Kippur.
