Yitschak Laor, "This Fool, Yitschak"
Pity the sacrifice? The commandments? The donkey?
Trust such a father? Who would get up early to kill him.
Let him lock his father up
His only one, Avraham, in a prison,
In a mental hospital, in the basement of the house…
Remember what your father did to Ishmael, your brother.
Azila Talit-Reisenberger, “In the Wake of Yitzchak’s Sacrifice”
He who justifies Avraham the just;
“Oh, he merely followed an order”
Let him know, I forfeit this forefather
Mine is a private one,
A dad who gave me life, never asked it back as a sacrifice
A dad who believes that even a small cog, steadfast
Can bring a mighty machine to a halt.
