It's All In There!

And on a late November night I sat down And tried to write But had no words And scratched my head And then I opened The Yated Perhaps I'll see What there it said And add to what The oilam read

Truth be told

Did not realize

How so much info

Therein lies

 

And thus I thought

It would be wise

To open up

And analyze

 

First, it has

Important news

Explained through its

Editor’s views

 

And from a true

Torah perspective

Rabbi Rapps

Is quite reflective


Flip a page

If you just might

And just read what

The “Readers write”

 

I turned indeed

Seriously

And read and read

Rav Nosson Tzvi

From every angle

That could be

And …  it was not

Enough for me

 

Chinuch writing

Page after page

With wisdom

Practical and sage

 

Indeed they cover

Not just mention

Each Asifa

Or convention!

(And every type

With good intention!)

 

Teshuvos from

The av bais din

U.S. poskim

Found within

 

History set

By every date

News from every

Single state

 

Concisely said

And filled with facts

Packed with info

To the max

 

Every yahrtzeit

Never fails

Bios written

With details

I know the work

That it entails

 

Advice columns

Do enable

Shidduch, chinuch

A roundtable

 

Of course on parsha

Endless sechoirah

Myriad columns

Packed with Torah

 

The Center Page

Oy! Git a kik!

To see if they

Put in your pic!

 

But if you’re not

There in the news

You’re surely in

The Lakewood views!

 

And that’s just half

For this presenter

Did not speak yet

About “The Center”

 

Of course I like

That part the best

‘Cause that is where

My musings rest

 

History’s Strange Side

Is there

Halacha Talk

And Libby’s fare

 

Crafts for kids

And recipes

And Binni’s

Clever mysteries

 

Quizzes, games

And C. B.’s tales

Every other

Tabloid pales

 

And thus I wonder

Who has time

To read the words

Of this poor rhyme

 

When so much more

From brilliant sages

Fill the other

Yated pages!
