Shabbat of Hope and Prayer

Well, in my real life where I have another name, big changes are taking place over the next few days. In a hospital in Israel, Ariel Sharon is struggling to find his way back to cognition while politicians struggle to reinvent the political landscape. In Moscow, a number of Jews struggle for their lives in a hospital, victims to an age-old hatred and blood libel of Jews. In kitchens around the world, a special meal is being prepared for the shabbat meal. Rabbis everywhere are going over their notes for tonight or tomorrow’s dvar torah or talks with their congregations. Pimply boys and awkward girls – okay, I’m kidding, you are all beautiful teenagers – are doing a last practice run before they have the bar/bat mitzvahs tomorrow. Shabbat is descending upon Jerusalem and Israel, making its way around the world and will be here with us in North America in a few hours.

Shabbat shalom.
