Such a blessing- I got a new cousin today! Welcome to the world, Jack Abraham Heller! Congrats to the proud parents, Andrew Heller and Karissa Heller!
This is particularly emotional for me and my family, because we lost a cousin, Kayce Goldberg, almost 2 years ago. God works in mysterious ways which I don’t think I will ever understand, and yet I am grateful for every precious day of life on this planet, and for the light every human beings to this world.
בָּרוךְ אַתָּה יְיָ אֱלֹהֵנוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, יוֹצֵר אוֹר וּבוֹרֵא חשֶׁךְ, עֹשֶֹה שָׁלוֹם וּבוֹרֵא אֶת הַכֹּל. בָּרוךְ אַתָּה, יְיָ, יוֹצֵר הַמְּאוֹרוֹת
Blessed are you, Adonai our God, ruler of the universe, who forms light and creates darkness, who makes peace and creates all things. Blessed are you, Adonai, who forms light.
