Dream: 4 cups, the sea and a child

While putting together a Passover Seder the emphasis was on the four cups, especially the cup of salvation. Also it was taught that when Moses held up the snake in the desert to keep the plague in check, there was no way that snake would’ve stayed on the pole. Only a cross would be able to hold the snake up. This caused tremendous distress among the Seder participants because some of them were brave settlers from Judea and Samaria and I heard one was a rabbi from Tekoa, where my religious daughter used to live and I recognized some of the people from Tekoa and Bat Ayin and the area.

The location of the Seder was in a grand hall that looked something like a Parisian train station with high ceilings, ornate decor, gilded golden architectural features on the walls and ledges all around just under the ceiling.

There was a deep blue sea running through the hall and at one point we got into a boat and sailed out of the hall into a much larger expanse of sea that had different levels. In some levels the water flowed more rapidly while in others the waters were frightfully deep like the ocean. Some of the waters varied in color from turquoise to deep gray-green. Many Israelis, both secular and religious, were sailing on this sea with overwhelming joy and it was so exciting to witness!

When I entered the hall I heard one of my daughter’s sons calling me, but I didn’t see him anywhere. Finally I looked up and saw him standing on one of the ornate ledges just under the ceiling. This little boy loves to climb like his Aba but I had no idea how he got up there!

There was no time to call the fire department so my husband and I quickly organized a group of young men and women to hold up a tarp and stand under the place to catch him. I kept telling the young adults to look up and make sure that, as he was falling, he would hit the center of the tarp, not the edge. I also told them to be ready to move a little bit so that the child would land in the very center of the tarp and when he made impact, DON’T LET GO!!!

They quickly assembled and I called up to our sweet boy that I’d count to seven, the number of Elohim and then he would jump. I also told him not to dive head first but lay on his back and spread his arms like a bird.

Then I began to sing Carlebach’s version of “Esa Enai” and all the young adults joined me in singing this Psalm.

After we all counted to 7, he jumped and landed perfectly safe in the center. Hugs abounded and a palpable new hope flooded the Land.

I sensed this hope was coming soon because the meaning of our grandson’s name is “G-d will answer”.

At first I didn’t write down this dream but an hour later, the memory of every detail returned precisely as it was in the dream, even now bringing great hope.
