The happiness of Sukkot collides with the three-year anniversary of the twin boys to whom Devorah gave birth. She gave her friends the greatest gift that one can give—surrogacy. Exploring the painful journey of infertility, and the pitfalls in confronting an unexpected outcome, we are led on one such journey through Devorah’s compassionate and self-reflective lens.
Trigger warning: message deals with the pain of infertility, the highs, and lows of desiring, wanting and losing the potential for children.
Music and verse from the Hallel, psalms of praise, traditionally sung over Sukkot and Simhat Torah. Join us Sunday morning tefillah for Simhat Torah with Hineni.
Hineni.Space posts brief daily offerings (Elul meditations, reflections, poetry, and melodies). There is a tradition to hear the shofar every day of the month of Elul and to recite the verses of Psalm 27.
