“It’s a job that[’s]… fitting for someone who looks positively towards the future, towards new love…and the best in every scenario.”
Thanks to Rabbi Burt Visotzky for sending this great track from Girls in Trouble.
Creator of heaven and earth. / May it be your will to free the captive wives of Israel / When love and sanctity have fled the home, / But their husbands bind them in the tatters of ketubot. / Remove the bitter burden from these agunot and / Soften the hearts of their misguided captors. / Liberate your faithful daughters from their anguish. / Enable them to establish new homes and raise up children in peace. / Grant wisdom to the judges of Israel. / Teach them to recognize oppression and rule against it. / Infuse our rabbis with courage to use their power for good alone. / Blessed are you, creator of heaven and earth, who frees the captives. / Baruch matir asurim.
“In this madness today,/ I clearly will not forget you.”
