My Heart is in India
I have lived in the United States for over 50 years and my heart is still drawn back to India. Before every trip I make with my twice-yearly groups, the anticipation, excitement and yes, trepidation builds until I am on the plane. This year we will have the extraordinary privilege of seeing the newly renovated synagogues, Maghen David and Beth El, revived in all their splendor. Every time I step inside the awesome spaces my jaw drops, amazed at their grandeur and glory, and I realize that my heart is thumping with joy. Kudos to the community members who have so lovingly restored the buildings, saving them from further damage and deterioration. We will fill the awesome spaces with prayer, song...and people!
