Come Home: A Rosh Hashanah Meditation

To the daughter who does not visit her mother, we say: Come home.

To the mother whose family who has perished from old age or enmity, we say: Come home.

To the son whose father is unknown, we say: Come home.

And to the broken-hearted who has been bound by all of this or none of it, we say: Come home.

As you turn to us during these holy days

let us turn to you,

our souls walking toward each other

and welcoming each other,

on the long and mysterious walk home.
