The Dalet and the Mezuzah and Love
The Hebrew letter Daled, begins the Hebrew word for door, Dalet.
We are always crossing thresholds walking through doors, that we can see and those we cannot;
I remember my father asking, ‘ when am I going to die?’ and I responded I did not know, what I did know was that something had to happen before he could die. Another threshold.
Doorways are always available to us.
In Song of Songs, there is a phrase. I am beloved and my beloved is mine. I placed the phrase on the Dalet inside the doorway to remind me that I am never alone.
Each time we walk across a threshold is a time to remember how loved we are
