Its been a long time away from synagogue for me, but for Erev Rosh Hashana I came back. And when we said the Schema, I cried!
Maybe it was because I saw Jews gathered together being Jews, after all we have been through. Maybe I had ‘awoken’ and been moved by finally seeing what I am thankful for having, and also what I am missing. Maybe it was just because I finally felt ‘home’. But I couldn’t stop the tears!
Have you ever cried during the Schema? (Or other parts of the service?)
