Inscribed in the Book of Life

This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses
against you that I have set before you life and death,
blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you
and your children may live. — Deuteronomy 30:19

According to Jewish tradition, every night as we sleep,
our souls ascend to Heaven. There, we record what we
did that day and we sign our signature. We quite literally
inscribe ourselves in the Book of Life, or God forbid, for
the other.

Let’s live our lives in a way that we can be sure to be
inscribed for life. Let us write that we live each day with
faith and devotion. Let us write that we do our best to
make our lives count. Let us write that we choose God,
choose good – and that we most certainly choose life!

With prayers for shalom, peace,

Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein
