L’shonetoyve tikoseyvu by I. L. Peretz. Translated from the Yiddish
by Max Rosenfeld

L’shonetoyve tikoseyvu –
Everyone, wherever you are!
Whether fate has played you ill
And sent you to the steppes afar,
Or whether, cooling fevered brow,
Before the Western Wall you stand.

Or whether, with a patient smile,
You bear the heavy yoke with ease
And buy the very air to live (more…)

 Do Babies Remember Trauma?
October 1, 2011 Conference on The  Register Now at the Early Rate!
