Mendele Personal Notices & Announcements

May 18, 2010

To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:
1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments;and 
write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has 
posted the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

Subject: Sutskevers a lid

I would like to know where I can find an English translation of this poem 
and, if possible, a recording of it being read aloud in Yiddish. The post 
dated April 12 had the first stanza (see below) in English and the rest in 
Yiddish. Thank you.

You say: There is no God. No world creator.
If so, my friend, it seems, the miracle is greater:
He isn't and created all that isn't, all that is,
Light and shade, rainbows of madness, all are his:
