What makes a chassidic woman? What makes a chassid a chassid?
that inner reverberation
that smile that says,
"I feel the light, do you?
that ability to stop, and listen.
All chassidim can hear
the sound of emes ringing through the darkest of darknesses.
We pass by them on the streets, unknowingly,
their light, unflappable, confident
Sometimes, we are those people
in our greatest of times
Sometimes we see the light in the darkest of darknesses.
We, too, are great
We, too, illuminate the world.
