Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem

papercut by Jerusalem artist, Archie Granot
On Rosh Hashanah will be inscribed and on Yom Kippur will be sealed how many will pass from the earth and how many will be created; who will live and who will die; who will die at his predestined time and who before his time; who by water and who by fire, who by sword, who by beast, who by famine, who by thirst, who by storm, who by plague, who by strangulation, and who by stoning. Who will rest and who will wander, who will live in harmony and who will be harried, who will enjoy tranquillity and who will suffer, who will be impoverished and who will be enriched, who will be degraded and who will be exalted.

But repentance, prayer and charity remove the evil of the decree.




May you all be blessed with a healthy and peaceful New Year.
Tikatevu v'Techatemu B'Sefer ha'Chaim.
May you be written and inscribed in the Book of Life.
