Did Eliaz serve in the army at that time, or know people in Gaza at this period?

“ In a whisper you ask...” is an exquisite poem by itself.
As thought there were in this world a bundle which can contain yearning-
I remember this so well—like a living nightmare

Throughout time and in different places, human beings have dealt with their pain in two fundamentally different ways--feeling more and feeling less. Each has its time and place and "season."
From tuesday, jewish idea given names can shape a human being, think eliaz means g-d is strong ...
My G-d is strong
Yehuda Amichai: “My father was God”
Eliaz, your sharing of your many layered feelings was o authentic and your prayer beautiful and strengthens our connection though we are far apart.
When was this written?
So powerful and moving!
Amazing poem (Hear O Lord)
should be inserted into the Yom Hazikaron's memorial prayer!
ON the doorposts - we could read this on Pesach
Amazing! Thank you so much!
Bringing G-d to account. Like in the concentration camp where G-d was brought to trial for His absence

Just beautiful! Sorry I have to leave early.
Cantor Alan & Erica Sokoloff
Speechless! It could also be used on Yom Hashoah
thou sittest in thine house - sitting shiva for your sons
Eliaz thank you so much for your moving voice - so resonates even for those of us outside of Israel
Dr. Dorothy Greenbaum
Holding God accountable
Perhaps whenever we say the shema we should think for a moment about those who who gave their ives out of love for our people.
It is like God on trial in Aushwitz. Weisel
A prayerful version of what Amichai sometimes says...
the blood saved the jews is elias saying that our boys blood now protects GOD and god’s relevance to the world and jewish people?
Ari, I hear and feel Leonard Cohen, an ultimate compliment!
The second song: Although I don’t understand all the words, I can fel the sweetness of his love.
Ari, Can you share the lyrics to your song? Fantastic!
Ari, what an amazing song and voice! Todah!
thank you! I sing also a lot of Leonard cohen song in a special tribute “HALELLUJA”
Voice of another Cohen/Kohen...

Yes in Florida we do wear sandals to shule, even on the High Holidays.
That was such a lovely song, with so much insight into the loved one’s character and quirks
I love the 2 readings of the poem, greatly reverential and also playfully (Thanks for the child’s poem reference)
This poem has some of the temperament of stories by Etgar Keret. Sardonic and piquant.
Rachel, thank you for amazing taking us on an amazing connection to this poetry and giving us wonderful unique music adding yet another dimension to Israel’s ongoing spirit from Tanach
Great program and music, thank you!
Yodah Raba, Rachel; Ari and Eliaz for a Soulful class!-Gail from Brooklyn

I can’t get over the description of a bullet finding its address
Not too many CSP zooms have made me cry as I did today..
Program that reaches the heart and the mind. Thank you. Phyllis
Thank you Rachel. Another amazing class. You have brought together wonderful people and created the very best of learning. Marilyn Bernstein
wonderful music and expression
thank you so much!!!
Eliaz brings together the background of a modern Orthodox who experiences the realities of war and contemporary life and tries to merge them into the Jewish tradition, a different type of successor to Amichai, but with more rachmanes to God.
My son once gave a talk about drossman
To give the benefit of the doubt tal the Cardinsl
maybe he was talking about how much others have learned about how not to treat others and praised our resilience as a people.
Once my son gave a talk about David Grossman, who was in the audience. Afterword DG came up to him and commented that he had seen things in his writing that he himself wasn't aware of.
Eliaz,, for how long have you pit on tefillin? Or did I misunderstand? Is it common in your generation
This is always the issue with literature. The writer’s inspiration isn’t logical or rational - it’s inspired!
Thank you again for a very powerful lesson!
We'd also like to know which other poets who are writing now that you are inspired by....
Eliaz, In Ultrasound, I agree that the pearls of the spine was a great metaphor . To me it was about the beauty and the miraculous round purity of the growing fetus.
Thank you is much!
Another wonderful class, Rachel. Thank you!
We are her groupies!
Nokht-schleppers ... the yiddish, if we’re talking chasidic
He deserves a shehecheyanu--also for a year of Rachel on Zoom...
Thank you for an amazing and wonderful session! Shabbat shalom to all
