I was thrilled when I learned that there was a blessing for seeing a rainbow. For me, this was an unexpected reminder that G-d’s presence is always there, even though it is not always visible to us. I immediately began singing “Somewhere over the Rainbow” from the Wizard of Oz- ALL DAY LONG. By the way, the Israel Kamakawiwo’ole version would sound great on tenor ukele!
