Our tears are His tears


Our Tears are His Tears  By Nell Zier   As we pray, He’s listening To know the depth of our pain. When He hears, He answers, In His own time, His own way. As we weep, He’s watching, To count the tears as they fall. As we weep, He’s crying. For our tears are His...

Two Queens


By Cisca Mudde   Vulnerably she bore the Prince of Peace. Neither searched for, nor desired, but chosen. No wealth nor splendor, Not even a place to exist. An escape to Egypt, Always an open door. In the desert she is protected.   She keeps His commandments, The dragon is furious, Wants to devour her....

by Jehoeda ben-Jankoiv A jug of oil for just one day more time was needed for Your Dome You saw our deficit and knew gave Your light for the Prayer Home. One light: my G-d, His name is One Two lights: for Boaz and Yachin Three for Noah, Daniel, Job four golden Tabernacle rings Five...

Comfort my people


by Cisca Mudde Who is ‘great’ enough to comfort Israel? You, who feel no need of comfort? All alone surrounded by a sea of fierce haters Cold comfort is a biting sword. Never is she allowed a moment’s rest. Driven on, uncomforted! Who will dare to console her? Most comfort appears no more than gloating....

We burden each other. He is faithful. He renews, cures what broke.   His flow of power and love, He knows the dry...

Shavuot


  The earth was unformed and void. His Spirit hovered over the earth. Adonai separated light from darkness. Messiah was there… Lightning bolts cleaved the sky above mount Sinai. Thundering noise filled the sky and echoed over the plains. The people trembled, full of awe they fell down before Him. There they lay, dismayed, stunned....

Yom haShoa


  We remember the people who were deported. From their familiar homes and families. Forced against their will. They had to go to places of violence. Separation from loved ones, great sorrow. Transported to places of destruction. Beastly treated, disgraced. Humiliated and murdered. Creatures of the Eternal, the Beloved. Families forever maimed by the empty...

City of G-d


  Jerusalem, intoxicating city of G-d, Far from shame they try to lay their hands on you. Greedy and covetous, they want to possess you. Jerusalem, where haShem wants to live for ever. Where the nations gather pugnaciously. Their gods are greedily tumbling over one another. Haughtily they are dividing the spoils. Jerusalem, everlasting city...
