AWE-SOME DAYS: Poems about the Jewish Holidays


This is the year

we will follow the holidays,

the ones we know well,

the ones we do not.

Days full of questions,

why, how, and what?

Days when we’re thoughtful,

days we are loud.

Days we can do better,

days we feel proud.

In the light, in the dark,

in the temple, the park.

In our home, in the sukkah,

fretting over the weather,

this is the year

we will follow the holidays.

This is the year

we will spend them together.
