I am drawn to the water. You probably wouldn’t be surprised that “Moana” is my favorite Disney film—“The sea, it calls me.” From the parting of the Red Sea, to prayer for rain and dew, to the custom of mikveh, Judaism is latent with whisperings that we should follow the currents, immerse ourselves in water and grow our communities around water. This water thing—it’s true of pretty much every culture and civilization ever. So, it’s only natural that as we start a new Jewish year, we return to the water, this grounding life source.
