Jewish Prayers From the Heart and Pen of Alden Solovy


This idea for this brief meditation arrived during Shabbat services a week ago as the sefer Torah was being returned to the ark. Let my life be a crown upon the Torah. Amen

Let my life be a crown
Upon the Torah.
And let Torah
Be the crown of my life.
My heart will overflow
With God’s teachings,
My hands will become
A fountain of God’s blessings,
And my soul will give testimony
To the glory of God’s holy word.
