Lingering at the Threshold (Kol Nidre Drash, 5778)

By Rabbi Adina Allen

Transitions are hard. To be in-between states. No longer who we once were, not yet who we are becoming. The dissonance can be disheartening. Yet it is when we show up at the times of transition in our lives in a state of vulnerability and openness that we become present for relationship with the Divine. For this tender, raw, vulnerable place is God’s invitation in.
