Caveat on reading
High Holy Days
Weekly Quote from
Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan,
[Regarding Shiva observance, continued] ... The stream of people coming and going prevents futile brooding and the compulsory abstention from labor makes it impossible for the dead to pass out of mind with almost tragic swiftness. I felt as if the days of mourning with the visits of all kinds of people and the daily services had socialized me more Jewishly, had knit me closer to the body of Jewish life and traditions. It is such a feeling that I always identify as Jewishness or Judaism.
From Communings of the Spirit, Vol. I, page 109, Thursday, February 1, 1917; used with permission.
