One American Jew’s Prayer for America on the Eve of Yom Kippur

We are once again besieged.Our financial markets are in turmoil. Every one of us, rich and poor alike, fears for the future. As Americans and Jews we have been virtually sleepwalking through a world that, increasingly, is murderously hostile toward us. Our people are taking rancorous positions in a political fight for the soul of this great land.

Please, oh Lord, hear my prayer.
