In these words, from Psalm 126, the psalmist comforts us with the idea that the labor of weeping leads to the harvest of joy, and it is the work of mourning that helps us move forward.
Drawing this song from our June concert of Debbie Friedman’s music, the largest in-person gathering at the synagogue since 2019, we hope this duet inspires us all, even as we recall the destruction of the temple on Tisha b’Av. May we return to Jerusalem, in person or in our hearts.
