Waiting at Sinai: Visualization for Rosh Hashanah

diverse multitude of jews celebrating side by side

It is said that we were all there when Moses came down from Mount Sinai, carrying the tablets. We stood together, every generation, past and present, waiting. Can you imagine the multitudes, the incredible sea of us? Close your eyes. Picture yourself at Sinai, waiting, scanning the distance for a sign of him, looking on tiptoe over the heads of your ancestors and children. Who stands next to you? Who is closest to you in these moments of waiting, in these holiest places? Look into the faces of those who stand with you this year. Offer your gratitude.
