Rosh Hashanah

Went to the Sephardic Jewish Center in Canarsie for Rosh Hashanah.

Lovely moment: services over, the genders can now mingle.

A man is man is unwrapping his tallis. His four-year-old daughter in a pink dress rushes over to him. She is beaming. She runs in circles around his legs.

He unfurls the tallis behind him, like a cape. She keeps running round and round but now she’s inside the tallis-cape and she’s running clockwise and he swings the tallis-cape counterclockwise and she’s laughing and now it’s a dance.
