Had Gadya
Added by: Josh
Just a note for those not familiar with the reference to 'Had Gadya' - it means '[just] one small goat'. It is an aramaic song sung on Passover, and talks about a small goat eaten by a cat, who is bitten by a dog, who is hit by a stick, which is burned by fire, which is quenched by water, which is drunk by an ox, who is slaughtered by a butcher, who is killed by the Angel of Death, who is killed by the Lord God.

Searching for a goat or for a child has always been
The beginning of a new religion in these mountains.

See Gen.22
