Here is some fowl language: storks, pelicans and owls.
The stork’s Hebrew name is chasida – can you guess why?
The pelican’s Hebrew name is shalach – do you know what secrets it plucks out of the vast deep?
The owl’s Hebrew name is tachmas – can you figure out why it is called a “wise bird”?
This sermon is about bird watching – perchance if we watch and learn from those flighty creatures we may glean something about our own holy selves.
Birds of a feather flock together. From the treif stork, pelican and owl, we may learn the most kosher lesson of all: how the many Jews of a feather can truly flock united together!
