Famous last words of German Jews prior to Kristallnacht: “No, it can’t happen here…”

The ode Yedid Nefesh (Soul Friend) by Kabbalist Rabbi Elazar Azkari is deeply endeared by Jews around the world.
Yedid Nefesh – This beautiful hymn has 4 verses – each begins with one of the letters of the Shem Ha Meforash, the Havaya, the Divine Name.
An interesting note is how in the second verse, the soul is referred to as a “she.”
