Ahavat Israel: A New Prayer for the Jewish People

Oceans are deep and encompassing.
They do not conceal secrets
But contain all things.
Ahavat Israel
Love of the People Israel
Goes as deep as the oceans
Perhaps even deeper
Nudging us to reveal our truths
Be carried by the tides of our innermost selves
And still, to be part of a lasting whole.
Praise to G-d who fashions the People Israel with depth.
