I often walk with the dog past Urban Adamah… a wonderful oasis in an otherwise industrial city zone. It is “an educational farm and community center… that integrates the practices of Jewish tradition, mindfulness, sustainable agriculture, and social action to build loving, just, and sustainable communities.”
This morning, as I walked past the front gate to the farm, my head was crowded with the darkness of war, when I looked down to find this perfect single dahlia. It brought me out of my head and into my heart, and reminded me of the word inscribed on the farm gate… V’ahavta. Love. With all our heart.
