The Chosen People – Poem

jaclyn leiba gluck

Are we the  Jews – The Chosen People to be the victims of

hurtful , hateful ,humiliation,

exclusion ,expulsion or extermination?

Or  have we been chosen to teach the World about

monotheism,

liberation,

education,

compassion

and innovation.

Our mission is no privilege  but a great responsibility,

to be a Or La’goyim – a Light unto the Nations.

to be a role model and change the world for good.

to  stand up to misinformation ,manipulation and intimidation.

We are only 0.2% of the world’s population.

We  survived 2000 years of persecution and

The Final Solution.

The Jewish people are a living miracle that defies explanation.

In every generation they rise up to destroy us but G-d saves us from their hands.

From Haman to Hitler to Hamas

Our history would tell you ,do not mess with us !

We have clung to our traditions with great determination

We are a proud ,brave and enduring nation .

Am Yisrael Chai
