My Beloved Is Like a Gazelle

39) “My beloved is like a gazelle or a young hart.” Happy are Israel for they have been rewarded with having this pawn from the High King among them. And although they are in exile, the Creator comes every beginning of the month, Sabbath, and good day to watch over them and to observe this pawn that they have, which is His darling one.

40) Like a king whose queen rebelled against him, he took her out of his palace. She took her son with her, who is the king’s beloved and the apple of his eye. And because the king’s mind is with her, he left him in her hand. When the king wished for the queen and her son, he would climb up attics, climb down stairs, and climb over walls to watch them and to peep through the clefts in the wall. Since he saw them, he began to cry behind the clefts of the wall.

41) So are Israel. Even though they have departed the King’s palace and have been exiled, they did not leave that pawn. And because the King’s wish is with them, He has left it with them. When the Holy King desired the queen and Israel, He climbed up attics, climbed down stairs, and climbed over walls to watch and to gaze at them from among the clefts in the wall.

Since He saw them, He began to cry, as it is written, “My beloved is like a gazelle or a young hart,” and to jump from the wall to the attic and from the attic to the wall. Behold, He stands behind our walls, in synagogues and seminaries, watching from the windows, since a synagogue certainly needs windows, peeping from among the clefts to watch and gaze at them. For this reason, Israel must be happy on that day, since they know it and say, “This is the day which the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”
