Here with you beside me, I feel so greatly blessed.
This moment means much more than I can say.
A time to be together, a time for us to rest.
Shabbat is here.
The time has come to celebrate the day.
So I hold you close, my hands upon your head.
As I watch you growing, I smile through my tears;
Sometimes I wish you’d stay forever small.
But then I see you blossom,
And I befriend the passing years.
I love you now, I’ll love you then, I love to see it all.
So I lift my voice to offer you this prayer,
for every step along the road, I will be there.
-Adapted from Mah Tovu’s Rabbi Ken Chasen and Rabbi Yoshi Zweiback
Why make an account and save your favorite JewBelong stuff? Because someday Jack is going to get off his ass and pop the question and you’re going to get to plan that wedding you've been thinking about since third grade.
Because why use any of your precious brain cells to remember where you kept those great readings that you’ll use someday at Jeffrey’s B Mitzvah? Make an account, keep the readings there. Easy peasy. The only thing you’ll need to remember is your password, and from personal experience that’s hard enough.
Hey, can you watch the phones on Friday? We have a thing.
