wise fridays: sharpen the     reception on  your WiFri

“Beautiful are the families of Jerusalem:
A mother from a Russian curse and a father from a Spanish curse,
A sister from an Arabic curse and brothers from the curses of the Torah
All sit together on the porch
On a summer day, in the perfume of Jasmine.”

Yehuda Amichai, From ‘Beautiful Are the Families of Jerusalem’
