Like Mary, we can give the greatest gift of all
IT'S the greatest gift, it's in every breath you take, in each moment you wake – it's the gift of life. In these days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur we are especially attuned to the preciousness of this present; the fabulous bestowal of this trembling heart, this wondrous, fragile cargo called life. Our prayers are saturated with a longing for life: "Remember us for life", "Who will live, who will die?", the bracha to the one who has "given us life, sustained us and brought us to this time" (Shehecheyanu).
