Ki Yachol Nuchal!

New olah; mom and wife. In small ways, every day, trying to rectify the error in judgement of my zaydies, the meraglim. "See these big grapes? We can make really big wine!"

Shavuot Song: Ahavat Yisrael

Posted by rutimizrachi on 27/05/2009

Yom revi’i, 4 Sivan 5769, Erev Erev Shavuot.

My name is Ruth.

Whither thou goest, I will go.

I have been seeking a place among this Holy People my whole life.

I have been included  — warmly, lovingly, laughingly, approvingly — lo these twenty years..

There is nothing so sweet as seeking a home for one’s neshama, and finding it.

There is nothing so satisfying as hungering for a thing, and attaining it.

The love I am permitted to have for every Jew comes from wanting it so before acquiring it.

This is what I would share with you.

This is what it can be to be a ger among Hashem’s Holy Nation.

Even born among this people, you can fall in love with it — just by making yourself into a ger.

Where you lodge, I will lodge.  Your people are my people, and your G-d is my G-d.

Thank you, Hashem, for bringing me home to Your People, and to Your Land!

Glossary:
Shavuot:  the holiday of the giving of the Torah
Neshama:  soul
Ger:  convert
