Yad Mordechai. Those who fell here
still look out the windows like sick children
who are not allowed outside to play.
And on the hillside, the battle is reenacted
for the benefit of hikers and tourists. Soldiers of thin sheet iron
rise and fall and rise again. Sheet iron dead and a sheet iron life
and the voices all—sheet iron. And the resurrection of the dead,
sheet iron that clangs and clangs.

And I said to myself: Everyone is attached to his own lament
as to a parachute. Slowly he descends and slowly hovers
until he touches the hard place.

Translated by Chana Bloch and Chana Kronfeld

I love that mirror! I found one about 5 years ago which is clnrertuy hanging in my dining room. I gave it base coat of white and then a layer of dark brown stain. I was so excited when I found another one about 6 months ago. It's waiting for me to decide which room I want to use it in. x x

Thanks for sharing the names of our God. I love how the difenreft names are associated with His difenreft character traits. But above all, I feel so blessed that He is there, directly accessible to us when we call upon Him!Living for Him, Joan

It is such a beautiful conepct to think that Hashem needs a place to dwell, just as we need a place to dwell. A conepct to think that Hashem needs us as much as we need Hashem. That conepct to me is just amazing to think about. How the relationship can be something of a give and take, because Hashem needs the people just as the people rely on Hashem to be there for them. What a glorious conepct to think about, and a huge conepct to wrap ones mind around at that!I believe there is a story in the Bavli that I read in high school that Hashem needs the people for the watches in the night, to mark time, to show that they are there. How interesting it is to think that Hashem needs to know that we are there just as we need Hashem. In some ways it makes it easier to carry around that piece of Hashem with me, knowing that Hashem is always there, and that Hashem needs ME just as much as I need Hashem.

The poem reminded me of a palrbae found in Buber's Tales. Here God's leaving the Torah is not depicted as generating longing, rather the leaving instills a sense of ownership/responsibility:(The merchant is God, the assistant is Moshe, & the product is the Torah)- A merchant wanted to go on a journey. He took on an assistant and let him work in his shop. He himself spent most of his time in an adjoining room from where he could hear what was going on next door. During the first year he sometimes heard his assistant tell a customer, “The master cannot let this go for such a low price.” The merchant did not go on his journey. In the course of the second year he occasionally heard the voice next door say, “We cannot let it go for such a low price.” He postponed his journey. But in the third year he heard his assistant say, “I can’t let it go for such a low price.” It was then that he started on his journey.” Rabbi Yitzhak of Vorki (d.1858)Mitch
