LOOK FROM ASIDE
In Brief ...
"I am in the West, but my heart is fully in the East... "these are the words of Yehuda ha - Levi, a poet, philosopher, doctor. He lived in the medieval Spain and during his entire life he was longing for the land of his forefathers. For many centuries the Jews of galut were striving after the Holy Land, after Jerusalem, after the place in which the Temple used to stand.
Unfortunately, it is like this: while a person is still living nobody mentions how kind, talented and sincere the person is. In the old days philosophers used to say "We engrave people's sins on the metal, we write about their values on the sand". This sad formula can be well applied to Lyubov Piyevskaya. She passed away very quickly, right after she celebrated her 75th anniversary.
