A Shabbos Nachamu Interlude
 
IS 40
Comfort, comfort my people!          
Speak to the heart of Jerusalem, and cry out to her
Gone is her term of punishment.
Gone is the guilt that was hers

Ok, most of that is Safam, not the official Art Scroll translation, but I don't care. I get chills down my spine - actual jolts of electricity - every time I think about this verse. It's fresh snow. Clean laundry. A second chance. And sure we Jews are on our third and our fourth and our fifth chances and sure we've squandered our chances again and again but if the prophets have taught us anything it is this: God isn't a once-bitten twice-shy kind of guy.

That's your Nachamu in a nutshell, baby.
