Open Your Gates

Open the gates for us
at the time of their closing.
The day is fading,
the sun westering and waning;
let us pass through Your gates.
(from the closing prayer of Yom Kippur)

As I was running errands downtown this morning, something drew me into the doorway of a building, where I saw this:

Padlock on open door

An open door with a padlock on it, engraved with the word “Eden”—evidently just the name of the company that made it, but pretty symbolic.

May this year see the gates open for all of us. Gemar hatima tova.
