Living Memorial

We just came from the bris of my new nephew. He was named for Aaron.

My gratitude, joy, and grief are so intermingled that they are impossible to separate. In an upcoming post, I want to talk more about this contradictory, yet somehow syngeristic state of being. But for now, all I have strength to say is thank you, to the new parents, and to God. May little Aharon Elimelech Chayim grow up into Torah, the chuppah, and good deeds, and may he merit a long and happy life.
