Blessed is the match consumed in kindling flame. #YomHaShoah

,אַשְׁרֵי הַגַּפְרוּר שֶׁנִּשְׂרַף וְהִצִּית לֶהָבוֹת
.אַשְׁרֵי הַלְּהָבָה שֶׁבָּעֲרָה בְּסִתְרֵי לְבָבוֹת
...אַשְׁרֵי הַלְבָבוֹת שֶׁיָדְעוּ לַחְדוֹל בְּכָבוֹד
.אַשְׁרֵי הַגַּפְרוּר שֶׁנִּשְׂרַף וְהִצִּית לֶהָבוֹת


Blessed is the match consumed
in kindling flame.
Blessed is the flame that burns 
in the secret fastness of the heart.
Blessed is the heart with strength 
to stop its beating for honor's sake.
Blessed is the match consumed 
in kindling flame.

- Hannah Szenes z"lm after she parachuted into a partisan camp in Yugoslavia

Rachel Brodie's "Taxonomies of Jewish Identity." And a tweet.

I've been scouring social media for mentions of Rachel Brodie z"l, whose funeral is in a few hours in California. And, inevitably, I'm finding lots of times over the years when I couldn't help but post something about or from her. This tweet from 2012 says so much. The graphic in the background is what she called "Taxonomies of Jewish Identity," lines of connection between the countless ideas in her capacious mind/soul. The quote demonstrates her quick wit and her functional brilliance.

God, I miss her so very much. It's very hard to understand my world without her.
