A NEW BABY GIRL
Begin forwarded message:
From: Dror Eydar
Sorry for not updating you.
Thank God, on 11 of Iyar, May 3rd, 9 minutes after 10 am, a little baby girl came to our world, a sister to Ahuvya, meheytav’el and ‘Ivriya.
We called her: Darya דַּרְיָהּ
Dar is a jewel, so Darya is the jewel of God
Also “Dar” is “to live”. So Darya means God lives (in her)
In Greek Dar comes from Dora, i.e. a present (also in Russian)
In Persian Darya is the sea or the ocean
Also in Persian “Dar” is door or gate – hoping for opening doors for many opportunities…
And a personal word: exactly three years ago we received the bad news that Rachel had cancer.
Thank God it is all behind us now. And not only behind – in the place of the disease that nested in her, new life filled Rachel and another nestling has been added to our nest. In the place of the foreign bodies which attacked her in a cancerous manner, tiny legs and arms grew and pushed to come out from her to her. To us.
“Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off” (Isaiah 55, 13).
Darya is growing and Rachel is recovering from the surgery, thank God.
May all of you be blessed with Besorot Tovot with all Israel and the world.
