This Land is Your Land

Walking the streets of Jerusalem, and especially hiking the land around it keeps me thinking of Gd pretty much every minute when I am not in class. The beauty of this land is matched by the resilience and wit of its people.

I am not going to say a lot – see for yourself. From me -just a couple of verses


Pomegranates in front of your home

Lemons in the backyard

Your laundry hanging on the terrace

A memorial stone every other street

With blood of your children you’ve earned the right

To live in The Eternal City

Oh, daughter of Zion

The Old City brings me to tears

Tears of joy

And of memory of generations gone

I am here for you

All my family that never got to see it
