Shabbos Before the First Aliyah: A Mother’s Blessing to Her Children
Leaving and Returning,
From the familiar and safe to the unknown.
Though your presence here will be missed,
You are guided by an emunah,
A belief and faith that all will be good.
Idealistic and pure in love and devotion,
Ready to meet head on all challenges.
Praying they will be few and not too difficult.
Serving as an inspiration to all,
Knowing that your future is in the hands of Hashem,
In the land he promised to his people thousands of years ago.
To make it a reality today, tomorrow and forever.
