There are many rituals one who practices a certain faith keeps even if they are not sure of all the fine points connected to them or even why they are doing them. Rituals allow us to hold onto a tradition that our ancestors did before. They allow us a chance to step away from the daily mundane activity and try to connect to a higher plateau. It is also try that those who follow them strictly can make us who don’t feel awkward trying to perform them or even cursed if we add our own “style”. Yet finding our ritual space helps connect us to G-D in a way that words may not accomplish for it’s the effort that G-D see’s counting.
