A Moment in Time: Climbing Jacob’s Ladder

Dear all,
Jacob’s Ladder,
A Stairway to Heaven
A love letter connecting
One step at a time.
We ascend.
We descend.
Aliya and Y’rida.
And we ascend again.
One step at a time.
We pause at each landing,
At each rung of Jacob’s ladder,
To take in the beauty,
And to reflect on the journey.
One step at a time.
We get mud on our feet.
We get bitten by mosquitos.
Yet we continue onward.
One step at a time.
Is God at the bottom?
Is God at the top?
Perhaps God is the journey itself!
And so we become one with the ladder.
Each moment in time.
With love and Shalom,
Rabbi Zach Shapiro
