With the High Holy Days rapidly approaching, there's a limited time before the Book of Life is officially sealed, and when that happens, who will live and who will die, who will perish by fire, and who by water, will be decided by the big man upstairs. Supposedly. If you believe the Leonard Cohen song. It's all a little grim, but spend a night leading up to the Days of Awe with Persian Jewish cantor-scholar Galeet Dardashti, and prepare for something approaching rapture, the type that rouses slumberers from their sleep, turns swords into ploughshares, and spears into pruning hooks.
