Hallel Rosh Chodesh Av Paragraph Four: One Day We Will Look Back

Jul 31st, 2011 by Rabbi Simcha Weinberg in Holidays, Prayer
[/caption]What is our vision for what we will do when we leave this exile? We will look back and realize, just as did King David, that all our struggles in exile served to make us independent and stronger.

We declare what we will do with that independence on the day we will look back on our long exile. The destruction was not only ours, but God’s as well; His Holy City, His Beit Hamikdash, the Glory of His Name. Our vision of our first prayer in Jerusalem redeemed, which has become part of our daily prayer even in the darkest moments and places of exile, promises to restore His Name as well:

“What can I respond to God for all the good He has given to make me independent?

I will lift up the cup of salvation and I will call out in God’s Name.

I will fulfill my promises to God in front of all His nation.

Death to His pious ones is precious in God’s eyes.

Please God, allow me to be Your servant.

I am Your worker, the son of Your maidservant,

You unlocked my chains.

I will bring an offering of thanks to You, and I will call out in the Name of God.

I will fulfill my promises to God in front of all His nation.

In the courtyards of God’s House, in the center of Jerusalem.

Hallelukah!”
