As the sun sets upon another day,
G-d paints the clouds red and pink
Atop the clean blue sky
Dotted with birds flying to their nests for the night.
As darkness slowly moves across the land
Candles are lit in homes
Welcoming a time of peace
And signaling the start of a different time.
We gather around our tables
Singing songs of joy,
Prayers of hope and resilience,
And relax into this renewed portion of our lives
We gather in our synagogues
Bound by tradition,
Rejoicing in our sacred community,
Celebrating our commitment to tikkun olam.
