Lee Diamond – The Astounding Shofar

Lee Diamond – The Astounding Shofar

It’s a clarion call

Precise and stark

Each note a message

Short and rising

Long and shrilling

Demanding and pleading

 

Repeated

Stunning

Each in crescendo

An alarm

 

But to whom / WHOM?

 

To the people?

To the multitudes?

 

Or to the The Throne

of the Almighty?

 

It wakes

It is ear piercing!

 

Awake O World, O Jew!

Or

Awake O God to our plea?

 

Someone’s sleeping !

Is it The Hidden Face of God

That slumbers and has abandoned our grave need?

 

Or is it ——our own Deaf Ears

That hear not

And allow for  only silence?

 

The Baal Shem Tov

Tells a hearing story:

 

When all the keys to heaven

Are lost

And the gates thereof are sealed to us

And we can’t stand in HIS presence

To beg for forgiveness

 

The only “instrument”

That shatters the Walls

That Breaches the gap

That Open HIS ears

 

Is the

“Astounding Shofar”

Rising and falling

The only Jewish musical  instrument

 

A Jewish plea, a Blast to

Be heard by

The Distant

NAME

Hear o Lord

Israel Is CALLING  –TEKIAH

Shevarim

Teruah

 

Tekiah Gedolah
