Reb Zalman died today. I met him earlier this year, quite by chance. To see him --- to hear him teach and sing --- was to feel the heart opening. I thought the moment was important enough to note here. How strange to login and find my last post (private) was about him. I feel like I've been trying to find the words for the experience all year.

Here is a link to his obituary:

Here is a link to my last post, which I have now unlocked:

The only Jewish celebration I've ever attended that moved me was one year when we went a Rosh Hashanah service in Ft. Collins that Rab. Zalman led. We sang about letting God's peace prevail on Earth, and that one and I only time I felt like a participant and not a spectator. He was a special guy. Jon's sister was friends with his son Yotam, who was also a sweet guy. It's sad when a light like his goes out.
