Pre - Introduction - Part 1
Course Text Begins Here:
By Dr. Akiva Gamliel Belk
Oft in generations past a fervent alluring magnificent light glowed,
This burst of light revealed many dedicated hours of Torah lines rowed,
Word by Word each line carefully considered as Torah illumination flowed,
Oh, the pleasure of learning the Holy Text on the table by the fire showed.
Blessed are the generations where dedicated love of Torah is bestowed,
Then something awful happened. Our love and dedication for Torah slowed
From one generation to the next the glorious Torah was allowed to Erode
Now, with teared eyes, generations later I search for the path relatives strode
The once great light of Torah is only a spark when blowed
Then something really wonderful happens the spark of Torah light again glowed.
A rise oh Hope of blessed light. Set us aright in the path our relatives strode.
