Yivkeh/ “will cry”
Michael Kaftor
01:16:43
"Yishma" in the second to last line should be "Ishma"
Heather Silverman
01:17:18
No!!
Michael Kaftor
01:17:46
You don't do it .. you lose the connection
Michael Kaftor

Actually, Abraham had eight sons! Six from Keturah.,

Naomi

Sarah also saves Yitzhak from Yishmael
Tova Shimon
01:25:30
why is the name Ishmael /Yishmael ?
A Ginsburg
01:26:02
So does HaShem listen, laugh and cry?
Ofer Agam

Jon Tepper
01:36:10
'...Where my war took place...Amichai's critical life event, where life hanfs in the balance? Similar to Abraham and Yitzchak.
Ofer Agam
01:36:32
Because God heared Hagar's plea, so the angel told her when he told her she was carrying Abraham's son who's name is Yishmael.
Ed Grossman
01:38:18
The war also involved a sacrifice--of his fellow soldiers. Not a happy ending though.
Adam Wishkovsky
01:38:52
Sons? there is only one! Yishmael was send away with his mother when Isaacwas born.
Ed Grossman
01:39:06
And there is the broad Amichai theme of "remembering, forgetting, remembering...".
Esther
01:42:37
Isaac waits until Abraham is dead before he brings his own sons...one wonders...
Alan Carpien
01:43:01
People who are not Jews are speaking Hebrew and writing poetry -- Va'an Nguyen (Vietnamese raised in Israel). Do the Jewish midrashim affect their Hebrew?
Michael Kaftor
01:46:44
"Forgive and forget" must not be a Jewish motif nor a theme

Hagar or his third wife
Barbara Goldberg
02:01:06
the poet is not the poem. many times the poet has no idea what he/she “meant.”
Suzanne Levin
02:01:17
we are all there mother
Ed Grossman
02:03:43
There is a very different heritage (cf., Gouri) in Christian tradition of someone else sacrificing His son. Knife left in a heart is also a sense of perpetual guilt (original sin?)..
Jon Tepper
02:06:09
I usually think of 'knife in the heart' as the way a mother induces guilt in another, usually her child.
Lawrence Kaplan
02:06:50
Thank you.
Erica Sokoloff
02:14:25
Or sometimes the child pushes the knife into her heart:(
Kitty Hoffman
02:18:45
Tova, thanks you for these words. My daughter is training to be a nurse, and has chosen to work in a long term care facility this summer — here in Montreal our death rate is the 7th highest in the world. I am very proud of her (and also very stressed).
Michal
