Everyone loves a good camp song
By Laura Seymour

Dear Families,
Camp songs come in all shapes and sizes but everyone has a message. This is a camp favorite with stories from the Tanach.
Talk about the stories with your families. Who are each of the heroes in our stories? What does it mean that “no man walks alone”? What does the last verse tell us? What is our responsibility to take care of others?

No Man Walks Alone

No man, no man walks alone (2)
There’s a reason for this prophecy
A promise made to you and me that no man, no man walks alone.
CHORUS: I tell you no man walks alone. No man walks alone
Just let your faith abide. Somebody’s by your side
No man walks alone (2) No man can make it on his own.
You take Daniel who was thrown to the lions (2)
He knew no fear for he could hear a voice a whispering in his ear that
No man, no man walks alone. CHORUS
You take Joshua at the walls of Jericho (2)
Tho’ he was fearless on his own he couldn’t move those walls alone for
No man, no man walks alone. CHORUS
You take the tribes of Israel walking ‘cross the land (2)
Oh, they walked in a line across the land, not walking alone, but hand in hand
Singing, “No man, no man walks alone.” CHORUS
You take a small child and hold him by the hand (2)
Then you see the faith he has in you as young as he is he knows it’s true
That no man, no man walks alone. CHORUS
Camp has started throughout the U.S. and we have Dallas campers having the times of their lives creating memories through activities and especially through singing together. As the temperatures rise, the warmth will hopefully remind you of your wonderful summers.
Shalom, from the Shabbat Lady.
