The Dream of a New Year

  Today we celebrate the 
beginning of the New Year for the sons and 
     daughters of Israel
As the prayer says life is "the dream that flies away" 
Well, now is the time 
to take stock of ourselves 
breathe a deep sigh 
   for all that has gone before
and look ahead confidently 
   into the future 
We lift our voices in song 
  and our hearts in prayer
  The Book of Life opens 
   and our fate 
is inscribed in it 
   The world is still a vast and sometimes dangerous 
With our eyes wide 
we prepare ourselves for the New Year
   The blasts from the shofar 
   cut through the autumn air 
   signaling hope 
for Israel and the diaspora 
On this autumn day 
We should recall 
the sacrifices 
of our forefathers 
  and attempt to live up to those 
Not an easy task 
but a necessary one
L'Shanah Tovah
