this week's proverb
אַלע תּאוות פון דער וועלט זענען ווי שטראַלן פון דער זון, וואָס קוקן אויס ווי זײַלן בּיז מ'טאַפּט עס אָן מיט די הענט און עס האָט נישט קײַן ממשות
transliteration
a'le tayves fun der velt zenen vi shtraln fun der zun, vos kukn oys vi zayln biz m'tapt es on mit di hent un es hot nit kayn mamoshes
the proverb actually means
All of the desires of the world are like rays of sunlight.
They look like pillars but when you try to touch them with your hand you find there is nothing in your grasp

translated to Hebrew
כל התאוות של העולם דומים לקרני אור הנכנסים לבית מן השמש שהם נדמים כעמודים מחמת הזריחה של החמה. וכשמנסים לגעת בעמודי האור האלה לא נשאר בתוך היד כלום, אין בו ממשות
