Dear friends, Taking off for a few days for the end of year I am just packing this page, a blessing to go. And wanted to share it with you and wish everyone a Happy New Year!
It is the nineteenth blessing of a daily Jewish prayer called the Amida, to give thanks to ADONAI, and starts with the words "Sim Shalom", which means Grant Peace.
We thank You, for it is You alone who is ADONAI our God and the God of our fathers, forever and ever. You are the Rock and Shield of our salvation, You alone, from generation to generation. We thank You and tell of Your praise, for our lives are in Your hands and our souls are trusting in You. Every day Your miracles are with us: Your wonders and favors are at all times, evening, morning, and afternoon. O Good One, Your compassions are never exhausted and Your kindnesses are continual. We put our hope in You.
Much Love and Shalom in 2018! See you in 2018!
Your Challah and Cherry Blossoms correspondant
