Shabbat shalom

Shabbat shalom

Rembrandt painting of a richly dressed century man and woman embracing
Deep waters can’t put love out, and rivers will not drown it.
If a man gave all of his family’s wealth for love, would anybody blame him?
Song of Songs 8:7
as rendered in James L. Kugel, The Great Poems of the Bible: A Reader’s Companion with New Translations. Free Press, 1999. 274.
