The Wall

Teens-082214

My land is under attack
My country’s fighting back,
I run with all my strength
To the WALL.

 

There are screams and cries of fear
As missiles fly through the air,
As they fall upon us we go
To the WALL.

 

We are shattered more each day
As the lives we know are taken away,
The only thing that still remains
Is the WALL.

 

As thousands of salty tears flow,
As my nation prays as one I know
We must pray to G-d and find solace
At the WALL.

 

Centuries of crumbling stone
Tell a story all their own,
Fragments of lives are hidden
In the WALL.

 

Scraps of parchment are wedged in the cracks
Heartfelt prayers for things which we lack;
Yisrael we must unite
At the WALL.

 

When the world is being yanked apart,
When you’re in pain know inside your heart
You can always pray to G-d
At the WALL.

Everyone has a weakness. For some people it is the inability to walk past a sales rack without dropping a few hundred dollars. For others, it’s the inability to keep their house organized.

His entire life was dedicated to Torah and he became a pivotal figure in the transmittal of the Oral Torah to the next generation.

When you don’t have anyone else to turn to… that’s when you’re tied to Hashem the closest.

While we all go to restaurants for a good meal, it is dessert, that final taste that lingers in your mouth, that is the crown jewel of any dining experience and Six Thirteen’s offerings did not disappoint.

Today, fifty years and six million (!) people later, Israel is truly a different world.

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.

In Uzbekistan, in the early twentieth century, it was the women who wore the pants.

This is an important one in raising a mentsch (and maybe even in marrying off a mentsch! listening skills are on the top of the list when I do shidduch coaching).

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.

Are we wealthy, are we paupers?
Are we kings or are we slaves?

Her faith she had to hide,
To find out the king tried
But no answer would ever come from
His wife.

When a child is trembling with fear,
When guns command him to raise his hands in the air
You know beyond a shadow of doubt
The World Has Gone Upside Down.
