Speechless space dweller-
Are you still in the synagogues and study houses?
Or in the silences that do not utter your name?
Do you still reveal yourself in minyanThe group of ten adult Jews needed to read from the Torah and to recite some of the most important communal prayers. In Orthodox communities, a quorum of ten men is traditionally required. Today, most liberal Jewish communities count all Jewish adults as part of a minyan.?
Or do you unmask in the quiet corners and unfamiliar streets of our own hidden longing?
For once, do not lead me.
But come to me.
This solitary party.
This congregation of one.
Find me in the emptying,
In the absence of clutter and noise.
Make yourself known to me.
And as you enter my home,
know I will exit.
Making that long trek yonder.
