Alone And Not Alone


Remembering My Dear Wife, Rebbetzin Lillian Chomsky,


On Her First Yahrzeit


 


                              
   Alone and not alone am I,
   Little till now did I know why.
   Of the various menus that life does serve,
   Not all do we accept, or feel we deserve.
   Especially is the loss of a beloved difficult to bear,

   A source of joy and comfort, for whom we shed many a tear.
   No one can replace her, to be sure,
   Devastating is the loss of a soul, so beautiful, so pure.

   Never a bad word about her could one say,
   Outstandingly successful in her multifaceted tasks, from day to day.
   Teacher, wife, mother, grandma, excelling in all,

   Ashining example, royally graceful and tall.
   Love for family, and for good deeds,
   Over and above expectations, she provided our needs.
   Now and forever, my sweet dear Lillian is part of me,
   Entwining our glorious life together unto eternity!

There will always be items that don’t freeze well – salads and some rice- or potato-based dishes – so you need to leave time to prepare or cook them closer to Yom Tov and ensure there is enough room in the refrigerator to store them.

While multitasking is not ideal, it is often necessary and unavoidable.

Maybe now that your kids are back in school, you should start cleaning for Pesach.

Neglect, indifference or criticism can break a person’s neshama.

It’s fair to say that we all know or have someone in our family who is divorced.

The assumption of a shared kinship is based on being part of the human race. Life is so much easier to figure out when everyone thinks the same way.
