Olam Chesed Yibaneh, covered by Cantor Lisa Peicott​ of Wilshire Boulevard Temple​

What a day... every once in a while, I search YouTube for "Olam Chesed Yibaneh", sort by upload date, and am overwhelmed. This take on my soul's song by Cantor Lisa Peicott​ of Wilshire Boulevard Temple​, interspersed with images of light, color, and heroism is just right for these days of pause. Let's keep going, friends - keep building, keep loving, keep singing!

Everywhere


Everywhere
Menachem Creditor

Those faces
on the screen are real:
real people,
real faces.

God's Eyes, everywhere.
God's Heart, everywhere.

A Poem "For When the World is Masked"

For When the World is Masked
Menachem Creditor

Deep, powerful feelings can be reawakened.
Even when the world is masked.

It can be a song.
Or the wind.
Or pairs of eyes on a screen, all facing out.

And, if tears then flow,
welcome them with a re-opened heart.
