This is the best article I’ve yet read on the Jewish people vis-à-vis Israel (and mostly what I’ve been saying, all along):

DK Eyewitness Books: Judaism – Discover the History, Faith, and Culture That Have Shaped the Modern Jewish World

 

DK Eyewitness Books: Judaism – Discover the History, Faith, and Culture That Have Shaped the Modern Jewish World (Randyjw; April 19, 2019)

 

CHARING, D. DK Eyewitness Books: Judaism – Discover the History, Faith, and Culture That Have Shaped the Modern Jewish World. First American Edition 2003. DK Publishing, Inc., 375 Hudson Street, New York, New York 10014. Copyright 2003 Dorling Kindersley Limited, London.

 

This great book is one of a series, called DK Eyewitness Books, on multiple educational subjects aimed at children and young adults. This older, 2003 library version, is a slim, hardcover coffee table-style book, compiled with factual short paragraphs of information and glossy, full-color photos. The photos are especially interesting for their archaeological- and museum-quality details, showing both verbally, and visually, some highlights from the periods of Jewish history, both modern, and ancient.

 

DK Publishing is now under the banner of Penguin Random House. For more information on the parent company, see the Wikipedia reference, below. The newest revised edition of this book was published June 14, 2016, with sixty-four pages geared toward Middle Grades (8-12), and is available in hardcover and paperback. I highly recommend this book, for all ages.

Let Us Be

 

Let Us Be (Randyjw; April 15, 2019)

(to the tune of The Beatles’ “Let It Be”)

 

When we found ourselves upon the Nile

bondsmen to our slavery

Built up Egypt’s cities

men unfree

 

And while the whips rained down upon us

beating us relentlessly

chained into our bondage

misery

 

Chorus:

Let us be (x4)

G-d proclaims His answer:

Let us be!

 

But Pharaoh’s heart was hardened

and he had no eyes with which to see

He who rules above us

Elokim

 

So G-d sent down ten plagues amongst us

sparing us eternally

G-d would let us worship

finally

 

(Chorus)

 

Then Egypt wound up devastated

livestock, land, and progeny

but now set forth to our freedom

Liberty

 

Still Pharaoh’s woes had deepened

and he suffered economically

the wage paid for those slaves

had come free

 

(Chorus)

 

The chariot army trotted

G-d endowed the rod and let us flee

by dry ground we departed

through the sea

 

And Moshe let the rod down

and two walls were one in unity

Pharaoh’s army drowned,

all but he

 

(Chorus)

 

In wilderness we wandered

seeking solace and a destiny

and false gods we created

Idolatry

 

And G-d called Moses to the Mount

and gave Laws for eternity

And Torah’s words of wisdom

set us free

 

(Chorus) (x2)

Doubtless

 

Doubtless (Randyjw’ April 15, 2019)

 

It would be close to impossible

to believe

that the silent conversations

I hold with you – –

without you

Aren’t expelled through

the ether

where they eventually

reach you;

it’s doubtless

Want them, or not,

there they are

before your heart
