43:18
Todah Nachama for sponsoring such an amazing musical interpretation.
Marjorie Gann
46:13
You mention the use of the vav to start the poem. Am I correct that In Tanakh, many, many sentences are connected with the vav -- far more than in English?

thank you Nacha a. my father’s favorite song also

Tamar O
47:49
Thank you Nachama/Chumi Kanner and thank you, Rachel Korazim!
Heather Silverman
48:49
Yes, the VAV starts many sentences in the Bible. It’s called Fav Hipuch - and changes the verb tense from past to future and from future to past
Ed Grossman
49:31
It also can take on the meaning of "but...." (as a contrasting connective)...
friedahuberman

Chana came to the Mishkan/tabernacle. Not to the 'Temple' which was not built until many years later.
Ed Grossman
01:09:56
Where is the Hebrew for the last line translated in English ("Over those stricken by your noontime heat")?
Estelle
01:12:02
The Hebrew doesn't need as many words as the English to say the same thing - it's all there in the last 2 lines.
A Ginsburg
01:14:58
What was her dream in the darkness of the Russian forest?
rheadorn
01:16:53
The motivation behind JNF planting conifer tree forests.

bialik
RoomD@Limmudna.org
01:33:31
thx
Dr. Dorothy Greenbaum
01:34:02
he describes her like a child protege a bit condescending!
A Ginsburg
01:38:25
כוסי רויה תהיל// //תהילים
Dan
01:38:28
I don’t think that Bialik looks down on her. When he talks about her “small” poems maybe he thinks of some of his long poems. Why try to see belittling when it may not be there at all?
Heather Silverman
01:39:55
This was a very common attitude to female poetry in Yiddish as well. They dealt with the daily events and not world events.
Dr. Dorothy Greenbaum
01:42:31
Ironic that “the Dead won’t die” remain alive by their written words

this poem made me think of Emily Dickinson
Jinny Sagorin

I agree. Lots of Dickinson there!
rheadorn

Yes Gail
Dorothea Dorenz
01:46:59
YOUr naming story is very moving. But your mom was very smart!! And there is nothing like the resentment of a woman who has a child with a man who deserts her!:(
Mel Barenholtz
01:47:08
In the future, please don't 'chat' while a performance is in progress. It is distracting when the chat appears on the screen.

Thank you dear Rachel and Asaf for this beautiful and intensely moving, emotional experience ♡ Although I was born in this here land of absent shade, I didn't grow up listening to this music and feel very lucky to have taken part. In fact, I didn't know the absolutely heartbreaking and haunting "Metai" before this week, thanks to you. Thank you very much to you all as well for your open hearts and listening ♡ Also, I don't know how to answer the private messages here, thank you all for your generous and sweet messages. My Email up here in the messages ♡♡

This was an exceptional class, Rachel. The poetry and Maya’s unique rendition of the poetry was were outstanding. Thank you so much. I will write my comment because my microphone is not working today. My mother told me a story about her aunt who made aliya in 1929 together with her brother and their parents. They settled in Haifa. Malka, my great aunt, whom I knew well, missed the Carpathian Mountains which had been the backdrop of her life in Hungary. She desperately missed the greenery and the song birds who lived there.
Ed Grossman
02:12:31
I find it hard to fully appreciate what it must have been to her to have TB during that period and the isolation related to that (think of a personal COVID).
Sarah Elpern
02:13:34
Thank you for a wonderful class and music.

For some the soundscape (listening) is most memorable, for others the landscape (seeing), and for others the food (taste)--memorable senses..
