COT: On the first night of Rosh Hashanah, as at the beginning of all Jewish holidays other than fast days, and at other times during the year, observant Jews recite the Shehechiyanu prayer:
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הַעוֹלָם שֶׁהֶחֱיָנוּ וְקִיְּמָנוּ‎ ‎וְהִגִּיעָנוּ לַזְּמַן הַזֶּה
(Baruch atah Adonai Elohenu melekh ha’olam shehecheyanu vekiymanu vehigi’anu lazman hazeh.) Blessed are You, Lord, our God, King of the Universe, who has granted us life, and sustained us, and allowed us to arrive at this Time.
Now, I am not a religious or observant man myself, but I have really come to appreciate what I see as the core of religion – gratitude, or to be cutesy, an attitude of gratitude. I try to get in touch with that feeling every day, even on days that aren’t so great (or, maybe, especially on those days, although it’s harder!), and I think the world would be a much better place if we all could feel gratitude for the many gifts we have received, and feel it more often and more fully, and take on the humility that comes with that recognition. In any case, I am so profoundly grateful to have arrived at this time and place, with you guys, however much you can be pains in the ass! Thank you all. It’s good to be here!
