I'm sorry about that experience you had, and I can understand why you'd rather not talk about it online.

To view Judaism as a gift for helping you survive such a situation is a beautiful means of coping. Judaism really is self-empowering. Blessings and peace to you, Shalhevet.

Believe me, you will not get that opportunity. I do not have to expose myself to you to satisfy your curiosity.

I see the people on this thread who shared covering with you, as people sharing gifts from Hashem with you. Just as David called it, coming under the shadow of the wing.


And you also handled it well with your response.


I know that people like to poke at both old and new wounds, but I prefer covering and healing.

A P.S. to my post; By covering you acted as children of Shem, who then received the Gift of Hashem.

I don't quite understand your analogy. Are you suggesting that Shalhavet was in some way drunk and naked like Noach was, and in need of her fellow Jews to "cover her up"? Shalhavet seems to me to be pretty good at taking care of herself – she's strong and empowered by her faith.

I believe Richard when he implied that he didn't intend to offend. I think we just had a misunderstanding here.

@All my fellow Jews: Let's celebrate both the gifts of HaShem and Ahavat Yisrael!

No, I was speaking of the act of covering, and the blessing that went with it, just as the thread is titled. I know Shalhavet is strong as I referenced in my post.


I don't know Richards motives. When I wrote that people like to poke at both old and new wounds, I was speaking from personal experience. So, I can also accept that he did not intend to offend.

P.S. I can also share many acts of covering from God's word. I just chose the one that went along with the title of the thread.

I need to correct the record, because I don't like the term that basically says; sorry, if I offended you, because that is the opposite of an apology.


It is better to own up to it and ask forgiveness.

P.S. I also need to correct a spelling error when I wrote the name Shalhevet, I misspelled it Shalhavet.
