These words of comfort are taken from Isaiah and are especially appropriate during the Three Weeks of Mourning for the Temple in Jerusalem. With her heartfelt voice, Neshama Carlebach sings in Hebrew these words taken from the Bible.
The photos were taken in Israel of recent tragedies and remind us how greatly we need God’s loving comfort and consolation, especially at this time of year.
Comfort, Comfort my people, said your God.
Speak consolingly to Jerusalem, and call out to her
Nachamu Nachamu Ami Yomar Elokaychem
(Comfort, comfort My people, said your God)
Dabru el Lev Yerushalayim v’keeru eleha
(Speak consolingly to Jerusalem and call out to her)
