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.

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.

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.

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