Dazed and confused? Not me. I’m just Lost in the Cheese Aisle.

Our synagogue and a Lutheran church sit on adjoining parcels of land. Church and shul get along pretty well these days... a good thing, considering that our parking lots overlap.

The church has been gracious enough to extend holiday greetings to us, their Abrahamic brethren, in these days of the Yomim Noraim, the Days of Awe. Lookit:

Happy Yom Kippur

This made me laugh out loud.

While we appreciate the kind sentiment - really! - it should be noted that Yom Kippur is a day of solemnity, of fasting and beating the breast as we confess our sins and pray for absolution. The happiest part of the day is when it’s over... when we go home from the synagogue knowing that we’ve wiped the metaphorical Sin-Slate clean for another year... and when we can eat and drink again.

Ahhh, our Lutheran friends. They meant well, and that’s what really counts.

That looks like an expensive church sign... wonder why they can't afford L's.

A "piece" of God that passeth all misunderstanding?
