We welcome those who join us virtually on these days with a blessing of inclusion of spirit and voice with those gathered in our holy sanctuary. May our sanctuary’s light and love be found in your holy spaces. May all our prayers join together in their holy ascent into the heart of our universe, the heart of the Divine.
בָּרוּך אַתּה, יְיָ , מפְלִיא לַעֲשׂוֹת
Blessed are you, Adonai, creator of wonders.
Thank you, God, for the modern miracle of wires filled with pulses of electricity and light that humanity, through its genius, has turned into ones and zeros, which are miraculously rendered into my dear friends sitting here and praying with me. May we, on these holiest of days, feel the presence of all of us gathered together and the strength of our prayers stretched over miles, lifted to the heavens as one community’s voice. One prayer, one plea, one cry, and one cheer we share on this day. Blessed is God, in whose world is found this miracle of community, technology, and connection.
