Haomnam – Will Forgiving and Graceful Days Yet Come?
Song of the Week • 3m 28s
Will forgiving and graceful days yet come,
When you will walk in the field like an innocent traveler,

Or the spica's thorns will prick you, and the pricking will be sweet?
Wishing you a Shabbat Shalom and a meaningful Tisha b’Av.
