(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditor

in honor of Rabbi Tamar Elad-Appelbaum

The soul can become real.
Human connection and the Earth's touch can revive what artifice distorts.
It is inspiring to encounter a dreamer who knows that her hands and heart can and must change the world.  
It is moving to witness her confront by including a voice that tells her the dream is a mistake.
I am overcome, experiencing crying eyes and dancing soul in one person, 
in one moment.

Exile is a state of being, 
and belief in a new ancient dream is its antidote.
