:קָרֵב יוֹם אֲשֶׁר הוּא לֹא יוֹם וְלֹא לַיְלָה
Bring [us] close [to] the day which is not day and not night.
As the sun sinks and the colors of the day turn, we offer a blessing for the twilight, for
twilight is neither day nor night, but in-between.
We are all twilight people. We can never be fully labeled or defined. We are many identities
and loves, many genders and none.
We are in between roles, at the intersection of histories, or between place and place.
We are neither day nor night. We are both, neither, and all.
May the in-between of this evening suspend our certainties, soften our judgments,
and widen our vision.
May this in-between light illuminate our way to a path transcends all categories and
We cannot always define; we can always say a blessing. Blessed are You, Blessed are those, who dwell on, and celebrate Twilight!
