04/10/17 - NNHS Newsletter - Passover Wishes

In every generation each person should feel as though she or he
were redeemed from Egypt, as it is said: 'You shall tell your children
on that day saying, It is because of what Adonai did for me when
I went free out of Egypt. For the Holy One redeemed not only
our ancestors; God redeemed us with them.'

- The Hagaddah

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 04/09/17:

A little boy came home eating a big candy bar. Seeing the candy bar, his mother remembered he had already spent all his allowance money. Surprised, she asked him where he got it.

"I bought it at the store with the dollar you gave me," he said.

"But that dollar was for Sunday School," his mother replied.

Smiling, the boy said, "I know, Mom, but the Pastor met me at the door and got me in for free!"

Yerushalaim Shel Zahav

 

Avir harim tsalul kayayin

Yerushalayim ...

Jerusalem of Gold

 

The air of the mountains is as clear as wine

And the fragrance of the pine trees

Is lifted upon the evening breeze

With the ringing of the bells

 

And in the deep sleep of the tree and the stone

Held captive in a dream

The city which sits alone

And in her heart, a wall

 

Jerusalem of gold

And of copper and of light

For all of your songs

I am the harp

 

How the water cisterns have dried up

The city square is empty

Nobody goes up to the Temple Mount

In the Old City

 

And in the caves of the rocks

Winds howl

And no one goes down to the Dead Sea

Upon the Jericho Road

 

Jerusalem of gold...

 

Although I come to sing to you today

And to tie crowns upon you

I am less than the youngest of your sons

And the last of the sweet singers

 

For your name singes the lips

Like the kiss of the serpent

If I forget thee, oh Jerusalem

She is completely golden

 

Jerusalem of gold...

 

We have returned to the water cisterns

To the marketplace and the square

A shofar calls out on the Temple Mount

In the Old City

 

And in the caves in the rocks

A thousand suns shine forth

And again we will go down to the Dead Sea

Upon the Jericho Road

 

Jerusalem of gold...
