This week's Torah portion, Lech L'cha, from the book of Genesis, tells the story of the beginnings of Abraham's journey...and if it were in haiku, maybe it would go something like this:
Abraham, get up!
Go forth and find a new place.
You'll get a big prize!
What is my prize, God?
The stars and the sand, try to count.
I can't count that high!
That is how many
your descendents will become.
Won't you be proud, nu?
