Light in the Midst of Darkness

When I sing the candle lighting blessings each week on Friday night it fills my home with a tangible sense of peace.  I love it, and look forward to it all week.

My husband and I absorb the peace on behalf of our family members and our friends, and on behalf of the whole world.

We welcome the Sabbath in song, because that takes our mind away from this world in an unmistakeable way.

Singing on Shabbos is a precious expression, but so is singing prayers and blessings every day of the week.

The following words woke up my deep, personal relationship with singing, "unto the Lord," which is something that I've done much more in the past than in the last few years.

"Singing to G-d fixes the broken tablets. The book of Psalms was actually King David’s transcriptions of his Torah-healing songs. Each of the five books of Psalms corresponds to one of the five books of Moshe."

Jewish Coach Deborah Riegel posted on THE important question we can ask to truly hear others' feelings and deep needs-  "How is this for YOU?"

And Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis posted inspiration from her experience as a Holocaust survivor, giving her a unique perspective on our times -  "But despite it all, the pintele Yid, the Jewish spark, was never extinguished. And if kindled, that spark can burst forth and become a brilliant flame. I know because I have witnessed it again and again. We have never forgotten You."

AMEN and AMEN, Father, May we never forget You.
