Rabbi Nathan Martin

Friends, we continue to direct our thoughts and prayers to Israel at this time. I share a brief excerpt from "An Evening Prayer in Times of Conflict" by Jacqueline Goldfinger.

Praise be to you, Adonai,
Ruler of the Universe, from the tallest mountain to the deepest valley, from my weeping heart to my clenched fist.

Your Greatness can hold all of my anger and despair as it can hold all of my hope and joy.
Your Unifying Glory binds my wounds.
Your Divine Love is a healing balm.
Blessed are You who brings laughter in times of sorrow, love in times of loss, community in times of isolation, and peace in times of war.

May we continue to find spiritual sustenance in our community at this trying time.
