Tiferet of Hod

by Judith E. Felsen


Just as the winds of earth carry Your seeds to scatter

so did Your servant Jacob bring the seeds of Torah to distant lands

carrying the message of Your embedded  light to all.

Today the force of Torah, mitzvot, prayer encircles earth as does the wind

awaiting harness and our yoke, embodiment of beauty

and Your will through every choice.

Like Jacob, may I flow as wind, now channeled by Your laws,

directed by Your will, and empowered by Your might

bringing harmony  and light to sites of darkness.

May the beauty of an open mind, willing heart, bended knee

and love’s devotion carry me aloft upon Your winds

in service as one who sows  the seeds of all Your harvests.




Am I willing to allow myself to let the winds of  “that which is meant to be”  guide my path?

Am I willing to develop myself by  harmonizing  lovingkindness and discernment to become  a more effective emissary  of Torah’s peace?




Am I willing today to embody right thinking in compassionate action  to crack  shells/defenses of darkness so that “the light comes through”?

As a child of Israel, am I willing to accept this as my purpose here on earth?
