Such is the human need to connect. With each other. With L'Eternel, the Eternal Mystery. Such is the mystery of the human spirit: They sought the Surpassing Comfort that transcends and inhabits the deepest grief, the greatest shock and horror, the Still Presence in the midst of near-total collapse. The solidarity of singing. Of strangers holding hands. On a starry night. In a city made rubble. Blessed be the Lord, they sang: Beni Swa L'Eternel.
What a parable to learn from!
