Choose Life

There was no blessing for this heart-wrenching act, so Erika and I created one:

ברוכה את רחאמאמה שעוזרת לנו לבחור חיים.

Blessed are you Mercy Mother who helps us choose life.

The blessing is a reference to the Book of Deuteronomy’s transcendent line: “I have put before you today life and death, blessing and curse, now choose life.”
