Ma’ariv is the mixing of light and darkness. The sun sets and the Divine Palate reveals itself in the sky. As the colors stir and blend, darkness envelops the sky. Our prayers lead us through this process. LA River Expeditions rent their flotilla of kayaks for Open Temple to launch into the canals. Music, Enchantment and Stirring of the Souls.

“Sing unto God a new song.”
-Psalm 96

If God is already tired, as suggests the Psalm, of hearing the old song, all the more so will ordinary mortals be.
-Alcalay (20th c. Jewish lexicographer)
