Israel

For thousands of years, the shofar has called the Jewish people together for many reasons, including ushering in the new year. On this Rosh Hashanah, I pray the shofar will not be needed to sound an alarm of war for the people of Israel. Let it instead be used for all across our own nation, as the philosopher Moses Maimonides suggested in the 12th century, “Sleeping ones! Awaken from your sleep! Slumbering ones! Awaken from your slumber! Examine your deeds, and turn once again to God.” L’Shana Tovah to all, and especially the people of Israel. Rest assured there are many of us who will never abandon you.
