What’s Important To You

Updated: Feb 10

What’s important to you, is that the menorah

have its seven branches; what’s important to me,

is breath, earth, and fire.

What’s important to you, is that I cover my head;

what’s important to me, is that we all pray.

What’s important to you, is that I marry Jewish;

what’s important to me, is that you listen.

What’s important to you, are these

disembodied, desiccated social customs;

what’s important to me, is the Godhead within.

No wonder, we hardly get along.
