Yom Kippur Peace

A Prayer for Yom Kippur

Penny S. Tee Article

Thank you for letting us reach this day.

Thank you for giving us another year to Be Better and Do Better

May we recognize our thoughts and feelings to be the fantasies of our perceptions

Let us remember that if we don’t like what we think or feel, we have the power to change

those thoughts and feelings

Let us live in the fullness of the present, the past may color our observations, but

we choose their power over us

May our eyes be opened wider making our neighbor’s experiences important to us,

as if their reality were our own―May we always fight injustice

Let us be brave enough to ask what our challenges are here to teach us

Let our hearts judge our plans before we act, take a pause, then decide to move forward

or not

We look forward to being able to be in each other’s company in person―

May we never forget the pain of separation and the value of a loving embrace

May we be inscribed in the Book of Life

Gmar Chatimah Tova! ♥️ (May You be Sealed in the Book of Life) ♥️

May we live in Peace, שלום and سلام and share it with the World
