"Lead Us in Peace"
Well, I started with Ladino, but then they went haring off into Ghardaia sign language. Did you know Jews had their own sign languages? I hadn't come across those until I stumbled over them just now. Anyhow, Menachem and Yossele are exploring that as well as Ladino with some new friends. "Lead Us in Peace" is written in free verse.

In the month of Nissan,
the time of Pesach drew near.

Menachem turned their route
toward the prosperous town where
his old master kept a smithy, so that
he could celebrate the holiday with friends
.


"The Work of Your Hands"
This inspired the free-verse poem "The Work of Your Hands." Menachem attempts to study the creation of golems.
