Turning: A Wound that Never Heals Meets a Fire that Never Goes Out

By Michael Eigen

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), September 2005

Drawing on poetry and the words of Biblical figures, the author reflects on God's presence in our lives and God's reactions to our distress and misdoings. He offers a wish for the upcoming Rosh Hashana that we support each other's attempts to work with our disturbing beings and not succumb to our taste for obliteration.
