S.O.S.

Teens-010314-Clipper

The voyage is going peacefully
A salty tang in the air,
But when the storm decides to strike
The sailors are unprepared.

“Men at the ready,” the captain shoutsTeens-010314-Liberty
“Make all the lines secure,
Pray G-d will save from certain death
Though we are at its door.”

Screams pierce the Heavens, fear strikes all hearts
Last drinks are going ‘round,
Dread fills the crew, they grab a raft
The ship is going down!

“G-d, have mercy!”  They scream with fear
“Our sins we will confess,
We’ll ask forgiveness for all we’ve done
We beg You S.O.S!

The horn blows out the desperate plea
The sound drowned by their wails,
The mast is sinking even lower
Along with its once glorious sails.

“Abandon ship!”  The bosun screams
They jump into the sea,
The churning waves push them to and fro
The sailors cry and plead.

“G-d, save us from this watery grave
To avoid widows’ cries,
We beg You for their sakes
Please don’t let us die!

We know we won’t last another day
A single hour unless,
You take us from this icy sea, You hear our S.O.S.”

Some escape the water’s clutches
But most sink into the sea,
The sailors cling for dear life
To pieces of floating debris.

They’ve sent their prayers High Above
They hope G-d heard their cries,
All that the sailors can do now
Is try to stay alive.

The ocean is a frigid place
And some cannot stay warm,
They desperately try to persevere
Throughout the ongoing storm.

The sailors wait with bated breath
For how long they cannot guess,
They’ll be saved when G-d sends a ship
To heed their S.O.S.

This therapist kept focusing on how “I could do better,” never on how we could make the marriage work.

Mistrust that has lingered after the fiasco in Ferguson, Missouri, has edged the issue forward.

“The observance of a kosher diet is a key tenet of Judaism, and one which no state has the right to deny,” said Nathan Diament, executive director for public policy of the Orthodox Union.

Two weeks of intense learning in the classroom about Israel culminated with Yom Ha’Atzmaut. Students attended sessions with their teachers and learned about history, culture, military power, advocacy, slang, cooking, and more.

The nations of the world left the vessel to sit rotting in the water during one of the coldest winters in decades and with its starving and freezing passengers abandoned.

Rabbi Yisroel Edelman, the synagogue’s spiritual leader, declared, “The Young Israel of Deerfield Beach is looking forward to our partnership with the OU. The impact the OU has brought to Jewish communities throughout the country through its outreach and educational resources is enormous and we anticipate the same for our community in Deerfield Beach as well.”

Our goal here is to offer you recipes that you can make on Yom Tov with ingredients you might just have in the house. Enjoy and chag sameach!

Gardening can be a healthy, wholesome activity for the whole family.

Unfortunately, the probability is that he will not see a reason to change as he has been acting this way for a long time and clearly has some issues with respecting women.

All of these small changes work their way into the framework of the elephant and the rider because they are helping the elephant move forward.

There’s so much he could do
Resources are not few
He refuses to end all
His SILENCE.

These monsters constantly attack
When we dare to try to fight back

This devastating loss
For weeks is the top news,
But the assassination of politicians
Is squeezed onto page two.

This Holy Day comes once a year
With prayers and begging and pleading and tears,

As they fall upon us we go
To the WALL.

Help me and the rest of them
Know what I really mean.

You’ve been taken from me my child
I’ve been alone for many years,
That you will never return
Is my deepest hidden fear.
