Scenes from Atonement Day 2008 (or 5769)

We were at our synagogue for Yom Kippur services on Thursday. The Roo-girl and I were there together, settling into our seats. This is the Jewish holy day where you ask God's forgiveness for your sins of the past year.

(For the record, the time between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur -- the Days of Awe -- is when you have sought forgiveness for those you have wronged so that God CAN forgive you. This is highly simplified here, but I'm trying to get to the point!)

The Roo-girl: *slipping off her Abercrombie and Fitch flipflops* I have a lot to atone for.

Evil Mother: Yeah?

TRG: Yeah, I have to atone for my $17 flipflops.

Evil Mother: Bwahahahahahahahaaa.

Our congregation does a variation on the Jewish prayer called the Aleinu for Yom Kippur. During this variation, which on this day is called the Grand Aleinu, the cantor and rabbi slowly sink to their knees and end up prostrate on the ground while chanting it.

It's a little hard to explain without it sounding a little odd, but the congregation is encouraged to do the same in the aisles. It's actually a very moving experience, and one that I have participated in several times. This year, I tried to talk the Roo-girl into it.

Evil Mother: Do it with me ...

The Roo-girl: You're wearing pants. I'm wearing a dress.

Evil Mother: DO it with me. It's not like you're wearing a thong ...

The Roo-girl: *crickets chirp*

Evil Mother: Oh, puh-leeeeeze. Under a dress? In temple?? You're NOT!!!

The Roo-girl: ...

Evil Mother: You DO have a lot to atone for.
