If you haven't heard me ramble about it yet, I am going to hear Elie Wiesel speak next week at the 92nd Street Y. If you want to hear him speak and buy tickets for either next week, or in three weeks click on one of the links below:
והיא שעמדה לאבותינו ולנו. שלא אחד בלבד עומד עלינו לכלותינו. והקדוש s.ברוך הוא מצילנו מידם
And it is this [the Torah] that has stood for us and our forefathers. But in every generation there ARE people who STAND against us to wipe us out, and Hashem saves us from their hands.
You might be wondering now "Why did she enlarge, bold, and underline specific words? Why is it in red?" To give you the brief, the particular words are like that because they are words that I changed from the original/orginal translation. Omed is really Amad, are instead of were, and stand is currently replacing stood.
Why red? Because of the blood lost. Not only during the Shoah, but also through the many crusades, inquisitions, and many other terrible tragedies.
At Moshava this past summer, on Tisha B'av,one of my Roshei Eidah, Bentie Rabinovitch, as well as me and other kids in my Eidah were sitting in a big circle and singing. Bentie said "We should be saying 'Omed' not 'Amad'. Think about it, there are people TODAY who still try to kill the Jews, and Hashem, not only did he save our forefathers, but he also continues to guard us now."
