They report that people are waiting for a chimney to smoke, yet I know not one. Plenty of smoke bellowed from chimneys not too long ago and people waited then too. Not bringing up the memory of 6million, partly because I rarely talk about it and in part that it would interfere with the festive mood of our “time of liberation.” Pharaoh sought to kill out the Jew boy’s, sultry Jewish mom’s forced their husbands to conceive with them… yet a huge portion of the Jews did not leave Egypt. They scoffed at G-d (and for various other reasons).
A positive word before I continue: As Bob M. said: “When I was just a kid my momma used to sing this son… this train is bound for glory … this train carry no one unholy” — every Jew will leave this Exile Alive.
There is a cardinal in a conclave named Aaron (Jean-Marie) Lustiger. His mom was killed by the Nazis. He converted at 14, you can find out all about him elsewhere. He is the point of this blogg I am not one to sit Shivah, I have heard of people sitting Shiva for their kids, by I haven’t met a mom that has, though I have met son’s who have been sat for (shout out to Heshy in Thai). Can you imagine his parents up on High looking at their son’s life? Supposedly he told Elie Wiesel that he “was born a Jew and will die a Jew.” What kind of Jew? A Jew like me and you, no doubt. Except, he is a childless Jew.
Parents want grandkids, G-d needs kids, and kids bring Redemption. The future of our people has always been reliant on having Jewish children. And it still is the deciding factor (amongst all left right and swing factors) of our peoples continued existence. The saddest thing (I have decided) to his parents is that he took away the opportunity from himself to be with a woman and to give her a babe. Granted it is not too late, he still could produce an offspring. Provided he could learn at this age to be with a woman. I am not making light, I wish he would. It pains so many people to see this man wearing a red skullcap… he doesn’t belong where he is. None of us do. We belong as a free people, living amongst G-d, like former enemies working side by side. I can not reach Aaron Lustiger right now — partly because he is locked away choosing his next father figure (orphaned), largely because I am not allowed to roam where he tries to feel at home. It is you that I request an ear: have Jewish children. Help yourselves. A vivacious (playa) young man asked me once for a blessing to have lots of sex… “May you have heaps of the best sex” I told him “and no sex is greater then unprotected sex.” In the right time, to your wives and husbands — please G-d, may you do all you can to have Jewish children.
