Learning from the Haftarah “Yehuda Amichai Was RIGHT”
Reading from the Book of Kings for this week’s Haftarah:
“And the Lord gave Solomon wisdom, as He had promised him, and there was peace between Hiram and Solomon, and they both made a league together”.
How interesting it is that peace comes from WISDOM and not from righteousness!
Apparently Amichai knew what he was talking about….
The Place Where We Are Right
by Yehuda Amichai
From the place where we are right
Flowers will never grow
In the spring.
The place where we are right
Is hard and trampled
Like a yard.
But doubts and loves
Dig up the world
Like a mole, a plow.
And a whisper will be heard in the place
Where the ruined
House once stood.
Rabbi Nico Socolovsky
Beautiful poetry – Amichai AND you!
