A tribute to the survivors of the Halamish slaughter.
How long will it take to forget that Sabbath night?
How long will it take to light the candles again without wailing?
How long will take to hold the Kiddush cup without shaking hysterically?
How long will it take not to cry profusely as the motzei is chanted over the challah?
How long will it take before the children stop falling apart?
How long will it take before thinking of ending it all will stop?
How long will it take before two Mothers can find the strength to smile?
How long? How long? How long will it take to bring back song?
Three have Eternal Rest.
But Seven have just begun torture in their very mind, soul, heart, and breast.
From now each Sabbath and holiday take a minute to feel their heartwrenching test.
