When my daughter Ruthie was 5, she requested an update on the song I wrote for her baby naming, “Wherever You Will Go.” She suggested using lyrics from “Sunrise, Sunset,” which I loved singing to her, as well as the phrase “deep in my heart.” I gave the song to her as a Chanukah present in December 2017, and she danced around our living room in the Facebook video debut of the song.

GRATITUDE REFLECTION: What’s something you would like to do someday? Take a step towards it today.


"EVEN MORE" (by Jay Rapoport)

For Ruthie

Here is the little girl I carried
Not so little these days
Growing and learning and singing and shining
Surprising me in all sorts of ways

There’s one thing I didn’t count on
When I held her in my hands
All the love I felt for that baby girl
I couldn’t begin to understand


Cuz with every passing year
And every changing season
As much as I loved you before
Deep in my heart
Where you’ve lived right from the start
Every day, I love you even more

Once upon a time it was the three of us
All attention in her direction
Now there’s a little boy at play, we’re busier than yesterday
But don’t ever think we have to split affection

There’s one thing you can count on
When I hold you in my arms
All the love I felt for that baby girl
Has multiplied beyond


One plus one well that made two
And soon what came along was you
And just when I thought I had everything

Everything became much more
Three was something, now we’re four
And the love I had was nothing like the love I’m feeling now

In 2020 Jay appeared on the Disney Holiday Singalong, defeated his former student on “Who Knows One?” and received a Covenant Foundation grant to compose the theme song for the Jewish Education Center of Cleveland’s “La-bri’ut” curriculum. ... more
