TAM's Annual Shabbaton, Parshas Behar


This beautiful song, written by the mother of two of our students, tells the story, in parable form, of how important it is to maintain our connection to our mesorah (tradition). It served as the theme of the recent Shabbaton.


Shabbaton Song 


On a hot day in the desert,

shielding his eyes from the sun,

a vision of the future kept him going;

yearning to give shade to everyone.


He planted the seedling in the ground

with tenderness and care.

Giving it ample water, 

he said his silent prayer.


Chorus:  Hold on, hold on, Don't let go

              Of our Mesora, Bechol dor v'dor

              Our roots are deep, they keep us strong.

              Zechor Yemos Olam


Nearly burnt by lightning,

raging storms a constant fear,

yet this tree's roots spread and deepened.

It lasted through the years.


Generations passed.

The branches reached to the sky.

Its flowers, fruits, and colors

pleasing all who passed by.


A branch swung in the wind,

longed to shake loose from the tree.

A voice said, "Take a look at your fellow branch

who thought he would be free....


He rode the wind, 

then went crashing down."

The swaying branch looked at the old branch -

motionless, alone on the ground.


Chorus:  Hold on, hold on! Don't let go

              of our Mesora, Bechol dor v'dor

              Our roots are deep, they keep us strong.

             Zechor Yemos Olam
