For the Tishrei 2019 issue, Chaya Shuchat translated an article from Di Yiddish Heim that tells the story of  a succah that seemed it was about to fall. But the Jew sitting in the succah reassured his daughter that it’s been standing for 2,000 years and no winds will blow it now, or ever!

English translation of “A Sukkaleh” by Rabbi Avi Shafran:

sukkaleh, quite small,
Wooden planks for each wall;
Lovingly I stood them upright.
I laid thatch as a ceiling
And now, filled with deep feeling,
I sit in my sukkaleh at night.

A chill wind attacks,
Blowing through the cracks;
The candles, they flicker and yearn.
It’s so strange a thing
That as the Kiddush I sing,
The flames, calmed, now quietly burn.

In comes my daughter,
Bearing hot food and water;
Worry on her face like a pall.
She just stands there shaking
And, her voice nearly breaking,
Says “Tattenyu, the sukkah’s going to fall!”

Dear daughter, don’t fret;
It hasn’t fallen yet.
The sukkah will be fine, understand.
There have been many such fears,
For nigh two thousand years;
Yet the sukkahleh continues to stand.

“There is a road: Healthy, happy, religious. And you can’t reverse the order.”  Mrs. Dena Gorkin has a unique sensibleness when it comes to raising teens. We hope readers of the NCN will benefit from that worldview as explained in her interview in the Tishrei 2018 issue.

“Dear Mirele” was originally published in the N’shei Chabad Newsletter (April 1988) as “A Lifetime of Love.” Teachers brought it into their classrooms, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks read it in a speech. It was reprinted in countless magazines and one book. At Auschwitz, the guide read it aloud. JTV even adapted it into this film!
