One thing that can inspire hope (and provide a smile) is watching some of our youngest members participate in services. While preschoolers may not have learned enough of the prayers to lead them, they are always eager to participate in the “Torah Parade,” marching proudly with their stuffed (or miniature) Torahs, delighting in the ritual. If there’s a Torah service, they are part of it, whether on an otherwise sparsely attended Thursday morning minyan, or a full Shabbat congregation for a rabbinic installation.
