A Shared Prayer


Each child has a sacred right to survive,
whether from Gilo, Gaza or Gadera.
In the Divine image each child is made,
whether from Haifa, Beit Hanoun or Hadera.

A sacred song must now be sung,
to remind ourselves that”We Are One”
is not just about a special tribe
but also about looking deep inside
to find a way to heal the Rift.

May we use song, our sacred gift
finding words, joining voices, Arab and Jew.
A New Year, a new commandment,
this we must do.
