I wanted to know a little more about this community
B’nai Jeshurun?? Also, if you want to hear some really good Jewish music, plug in:
Unetanah Tokef - if anyone has time, listen to the music on the above website.....ooouuu. - I read the words on the Unetanah Tokef over wikipedia, and wow! Now, I'm aware of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, this was a good time to read up on the topic:
A religious poem that is meant to strike fear in us: (listed part of the article)
"For Your praise is in accordance with Your name. You are difficult to anger and easy to appease. For You do not desire the death of the condemned, but that he turn from his path and live. Until the day of his death You wait for him. Should he turn, You will receive him at once. In truth You are their Creator and You understand their inclination, for they are but flesh and blood. The origin of man is dust, his end is dust. He earns his bread by exertion and is like a broken shard, like dry grass, a withered flower, like a passing shadow and a vanishing cloud, like a breeze that blows away and dust that scatters, like a dream that flies away. But You are King, God who lives for all eternity! There is no limit to Your years, no end to the length of Your days, no measure to the hosts of Your glory, no understanding the meaning of Your Name. Your Name is fitting unto You and You are fitting unto it, and our name has been called by Your Name. Act for the sake of Your Name and sanctify Your Name through those who sanctity Your Name."
