A Day Of Hebrew School In A Reform Synagogue – Andrew Nacht

I was twelve as I stood on the ledge separating
Hebrew school class from freedom..
The teacher wasn’t looking or that interested to begin with-
I could easily make the jump and take my time walking home
so my family would never know I was cutting Hebrew school
and then it happened:
right before I leapt out of the window
and touched the grass of freedom
an atheist came around from behind me and stole my heart-
just snatched it straight away.
I was so shocked I kind of fell off the ledge instead of jumping.
Thank god I was only one story up
or I would have had a much harder landing.
