Upon the hills of time
To hear the voices of the city as bells of evening chime
The Shofar sounding from the temple to call the world to prayer
The Shepherd pauses in the valley
"Pray for the well being of Jerusalem;
may those who love you be at peace.
May there be well being within your ramparts,
peace in yours palaces.
For the sake of my kin and friends,
I pray for your well being;
for the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
I seek your good."
(Psalm 112, JPS)
*I must give credit to my talented husband, who took all these pictures when we were in Israel!
