  • Prayers for the peace of the Holy City, Judea and Samaria/The West Bank, the State of Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. A thought for all to consider as shabbat commences in Jerusalem…A child becomes an adult. An adult becomes a partnership. A partnership becomes a family. A family becomes a community. A community becomes a city. A city becomes a nation. A nation becomes the world. (Think a series of concentric circles.) Which world do we want live in ? Peaceworld or Traumaworld.

    Shabbat Shalom.
