The Tower of Babel
It was an affront to G-d
Mankind was scattered

G-d confused their speech
Communication was hard
Was paradise lost?

Cain’s question to G-d:
“Am I my brother’s keeper?”

We read of Moses
Dying atop Mt. Nebo
At the word of G-d

Then we start over
With the creation story
Learning without end

Solemn Yom Kippur
Is followed by joyousness
A week of Sukkot

The sukkah is up
Decorating has begun
Lulav? Etrog? Check!

We’ll do some shaking
Some sitting and some eating
‘Cause it’s a mitzvah!
