Familiar old refrain

Tony Orlando & Dawn:"Tie a Yellow Ribbon 'round the Old Oak Tree". Anyone else remember this one?

Would that it were so . . .

Very idealistic. Unfortunately, reality is far from this Disenyesque picture of family. The many parents who reject their children, the many children who reject their parent is legion. Even worse, is the emotional damage done by parent or child who stay in dysfunctional, toxic, co-dependent relationships long after they should have gone their separate ways for their emotional and psychological health. Sad but true.

I understand that there are unfortunately many people out there who may have not experienced this unconditional love from their parents. I do believe this is an exception and not the norm. The speaker was not talking about every individual situation but rather the general picture of parents' unconditional love for their children. You ever watch a mother and father with a newborn baby? They dedicate every second of their lives to that baby while the baby gives them nothing in return. Why? Because of the unconditional love they have for the child. In the other relationships, it does not come as naturally. In a marraige or even a friendship, a person must develop this unconditional love, it is not automatic. They must choose to love that person no matter what (of course besides a few extreme exceptions). But almost all parents who, together with The Almighty, created their child, love that child no matter what.

Source of "Hav"

I've heard many times now that the root "hav" means to give, but I'm not aware of any Hebrew verb meaning "give" built on that root. There is "Latet" (to give) and there is "LeSayea" (to assist) and "LaAzor" (to help). So where does "hav" come from, and how do we know it means "give"?

Jewish Mom, March 27, 2016 8:00 PM

Throughout Tanach hav = give

A small sampling of the many verses in the Torah where the root Hav means to give:
"Hava li banim" Give me children (Rachel to Yaakov)
"Hava li ishti" Give me my wife (Yaakov to Lavan)
"Hava lanu lechem Give us bread (Egyptians to Yosef)
Havu Lashem - give i.e. ascribe to Hashem repeatedly in Tehillim (Psalm) 29 and many, many more...

I don't know if there is a hebrew source, but I believe "hav" does mean give in Aramaic, a language very closely related to Hebrew.

Yosef, March 27, 2016 9:48 PM

Rachel said to Yaacob haba li banim ... Give me children. It is in Bereshit 30:1

Ra'anan, March 27, 2016 10:21 PM

"hav" is Aramaic for the Hebrew "leteth"

For those of us of a certain age…

For those of us of a certain age, this story is a variation on the pop song from the 60s, "Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree":

Either way, it's a lovely story!
