A Still, Small Voice

By Janet Kirchheimer

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, September 26, 2001

The author describes her experiences on September 11th, 2001. A week after the attacks, she visited her parents in Connecticut to celebrate the Rosh Hashanah holiday and writes that as the words of the U'netaneh Tokef (a special Rosh Hashanah prayer) reverberated in her, she began to feel more confident about returning to New York and reclaiming her life. In the synagogue, the author realized that life would be sweet again, even at an hour when such hope seemed rather naive.
