-  "The little tree." This is a narrative allegorical ballad. "Our ancestors planted a tree of truth and knowledge. It then bloomed and bore sweet fruit, the Ten Commandments and Torah/Holy Writ. We nestled, like birds among broad leaves, within our Jewish traditions. Over the ages, though, storms have beat against the great tree, it has remained steadfast, and ever with us as our sanctuary."
