Raining Rockets is a moving piece composed by Sarah Dukes during the 2014 Gaza War when daily headlines highlighted the incessant rockets raining down on Israel. The song reflects feelings of helplessness, fear, and loss of control many of us felt at the time. Yet despite the fact that rockets continued to rain down, G-d comforted us. He was there with us- guarding and protecting us, showing us revealed good and open miracles.
Our community has suffered a number of painful tragedies recently, leaving us feeling as though rockets are once again raining down upon us. In these difficult times, it is imperative to remember G-d’s protection. Know that He is here with us always, waiting to deliver comfort and revealed miracles once again.
