“For the peace of Jerusalem pray: May those who love you prosper! May peace be within your ramparts, prosperity within your towers. For the sake of my brothers and friends I say, Peace be with you. For the sake of the house of the LORD, our God, I pray for your good. “ (Psalm 122)
We wish all our Jewish brothers and sisters a blessed Jewish New Year of 5773. This is a time for repentance, revival and renewal and we join our prayers to yours for this country and our world.
Let us commit ourselves afresh in the New Year to work together with even more courage and insistence for justice and peace, for pardon and reconciliation, for all that can be described as “tikkun olam”.
