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.

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.”

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.
