"Others the country take for choice/And hold the town in scorn/But she has listened to the voice/On city breezes borne" (Amy Levy)
Hi Mario - I hadn't realised the Haredi community was so close knit ... and it's lovely to hear your voice telling us the story and then Clifford Dyment's sad poem about the letter written by his father ... we are being reminded of those days of War ... cheers Hilary
Different and mixed, wise words indeed as you take stock of much taking seed.
Thank you so much. Lots to think about...
Seems like you have some adventures to look forward to.
You have come up with a novel method for producing posts, CiL, and you manage to find interesting topics to feature within them. I enjoy them, and I hope you will continue to utilize this technique far into the future.
Very thought provoking, dear friend. Thank you so much for sharing.
Fascinating to hear about this community. And lovely to hear your voice!
I love these spoken blogs - you speak with such compassion.
I too like these spoken blogs, your narrative prompts my mind to learn and want more.
Interesting story Cuban!love to hear your voice as well..Wish you a happy week coming in::)
I enjoy your voice-blogs. There are a number of such communities in the US and I lived near one when I was in Pittsburgh.
I love these but I always have to double back to listen at home! haha
Very interesting!This time I noticed also your family name. How is the second part pronounced? :)
seen like this it looks like a cityscape :)
I enjoyed this embrace of London diversity, especially in the face of the recent tragic attack. One can't think of British Jews without remember 1290 when the king expelled all Jews. They weren't allowed back for centuries. It's easier to be a Hasidic Jewish man than a woman - the women shave their heads and wear wigs and must sit in the balcony in temple with the kids.
