That melody discovered to us the sought after Hamashiachites. When I think of the teeming masses around us, I marvel that Elijah and I are now among these precious people.
We call them simply the Raj – again on account of our inability to reproduce their sentence long name. Three generations of a single family with almost as many members as letters in that name.
They confess they have been like sheep without a shepherd and rejoice to finally have direction and a purpose. (Through Elijah’s ministrations, of course).
And the benefit has been reciprocal in their willingness to look after our needs.
And wonder of wonders, the two youngest men have found work in a shipyard.
Tomorrow they take us.
