Guardian Angel


Standing in the pouring rain,
I looked up to God and cried out in pain.
The Nazis are persecuting one by one,
Before it’s too late I must run!Teens-032114-Gun

Breathing heavily my heart does race,
A look of terror upon my face.
And a man stands there straghit as a rail,
“Go that way and you will not fail.”

I walked into the trap he set,
And there a terrible fate I met.
A gun aimed straight at my head,
The Nazi smirked “Filthy Jew, you’re dead!”

“My name is Sofia and I’m no Jew”,
I stammered almost wishing it were true.
Polavstrasse 23 is where I’m at,
The Nazi retorted, “We’ll see about that!”

And so, soldiers pulled me by my hair,
I held my breath as they took me there.
I thought of my loved ones and of my past,
For I knew these moments were surely my last.

As we approached the run-down street,
The soldiers stared; my heart skipped a beat.
“This is the end,” I thought tears rolling down my face,
The soldiers started to slow down their pace.

“Sofia,” a voice so stern called out,
“Where have you been wondering about?
Your mother is waiting for you so worryingly”
And he pointed straight at Polastrasse 23!

All eyes turned to the voice in order to see,
The old man who spoke so convincingly.
When the solders realized the mistake they made,
With a click of their heel, they left afraid.

Confused, I wondered what was going on?
But when I turned around the old man was gone!

One should not give the money before Purim morning or after sunset.

The mishloach manos of times gone by were sometimes simple and sometimes elaborate, but the main focus was on the preparation of the delicious food they contained.

One of the earliest special Purims we have on record was celebrated by the Jews of Granada and Shmuel HaNagid, the eleventh-century rav, poet, soldier and statesman, and one of the most influential Jews in Muslim Spain.

Jews, wake up! Stop educating the world and start educating yourselves.

The lessons conform to the sensitivities and needs of the Orthodox community…

The program took on special significance as it marked not only the first anniversary of Rebbetzin Kudan’s levayah but also the 27th yahrzeit of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson, a”h.

It captures the love of the Jewish soul as only Shlomo Hamelech could portray it – and as only Rabbi Miller could explain it.

Erudite and academic, drawing from ancient and modern sources, the book can be discussed at the Shabbos table as well as in kollel.

I’m here to sit next to you and help you through this Purim with three almost-too-easy mishloach manot ideas, all made with cost-conscious paper bags.

Kids want to be like their friends, and they want to give and get “normal” mishloach manos stocked with store-bought treats.

Whenever he did anything loving for me, I made a big deal about it.

“OMG, it’s so cute, you’re so cute, everything is so cute.”

A program that started with a handful of volunteers has grown exponentially to include students from a wider array of backgrounds.
