איכה ישבה בדד    איכה אשא לבדי   איכה

נחמו נחמו עמי    

והיח עקב תשׁמעון   והם עםך ונחלתך

*Note,we started to write before shabbas, erev Tisha b'Av but couldn't finish in time

               Erev Shabbas Chazon ,Tisha b'Av ,nidcha, is perhaps not the best time to write an inaugural blog post after a long hiatus.But erev Shabbas is a time to be involved with the sedra and to 'live with the parsha'. If I write just for myself ,that is also ok.

              The NeTziv writes in a few places  that golus is something  מאוד נעלה  - something very high .Through the process of golus ,we become  a 'Light unto the Nations,' which is our raison d^etre.And we have seen continually through all the generations ; with all the horrors we've suffered from the savages  who have continually tried to destroy us,that they (that is;those who were left as one after the other our enemies disappeared from history) ended up, with inspiration, trying to emulate us.

A first post

As our first post in the 'blogosphere' it's worth considering the risks and , hopefully 'rewards'

of running an online journal.

Ma Tovu Oholeche

I was zoche the last week to participate in the simcha of a dear friend, the choson of Montreal and the kala of San Diego.I stayed over a day to visit a child in LA and return with a number of pleasant reflections.

Pinchos .. Heshev es Chamasi

This is a hard topic to post ; somehow , writing on the fast , at the beginning of the 3 weeks , seems to be appropriate.

Last week , klall Yisrael was hit with an incredible pain, a pure nishama pulled from our midst , brutally murdered . And if that was not enough, the murderer wears a yarmulka!

B'gilaad Nfishe Rotzchim

How horrible it is to quote such a chazal as the beginning title to a weekly attempt at  'divrey machshava.' How much worse so that these words this year strike  deeply in the hearts of every Jew ,of every color and every stripe.
