Everyone should have the honor of experiencing Bad VaShem with Rachel. I did on a Kivunim educators’ seminar in the summer of 2006.
Tova Shimon

Truat hagil is reminding us of teruah from the shofar
Tova Shimon
01:05:54

David Greenspoon

Nice. Another biblical bit is "minhah" vs modern "matanah" for a gift.
Ed Grossman
01:06:11
Also b'yom...haor parallels yom kippur.
Lawrence Kaplan

remind us of the Israelites remembering the good food and good times they had in Mizraim, when they were walking to Israel.
Wendy Liebow
01:19:21
interesting pun in the English (obviously not intended): step-motherland and steppe-motherland
Lawrence Kaplan
01:20:28
Should be translated to rhyme. I'm working on it.
David Greenspoon
01:26:54
I wonder if some of the poignancy of this poem ("pining" for the forests, extended family) is not informed by her illness, and the thought she is facing death.
Judy Hollander
01:29:46
I think we all long for home every once in a while especially when we can't be back there. Where or not we are sick. But I am sure that made it stronger
Michael Kaftor
01:29:53
1930's .. My mother at the age of five, with her brother age seven, have decided to run away from home .. to go back to Warsaw, Poland .. which was so green .. and their plan was to walk on the train rails all the way .. alas as started on their journey, they were forced to go back home .. because Arabs kids threw stones on them .. true story.
Ruth Kaplan
01:30:34
Is she identifying with the lepers?
Ed Grossman
01:31:14
TB was treated like leprosy in going into isolation
Michael Kaftor
01:35:38
The British parliament, years ago, officially admitted that the Irgun warned the British .. gave them 30 min to clear .. and they elected to ignore the warning.

Best just let her speak and accept today is not perfect.
Susan Mayer

If I could put this in teeny tiny type, I would. Is there anyone out there who dislikes this type of shrilly sentimental music? I was raised on rock.
Susan Mayer

Terribly terribly rude, I know

Note the more complex language/words from her deeper linguistic background in Hebrew.
Madene Shachar
01:55:08
I suggest listening to Achinoam Nini's version of this beautiful song...this song reflects the story of many olim for sure, like Achinoam herself.
