Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

May we humbly ask You,
God Almighty,
to help us focus
on the beauty and good
of this great country.

we thank You for giving wisdom
to Presidents George W. Bush,
Barack Obama,
and Donald J. Trump
for proclaiming May as Jewish Heritage Month.

The Jewish people of this country
are grateful and indebted to You, God,
for the opportunity to contribute
in making the United States a great nation.

Aish founder, Rabbi Noah Weinberg, of blessed memory,
would say to young people:
“When older people see your idealism,
they might say, ‘you’ll grow up,’
but what they really mean is ‘you’ll give up.'”
Rabbi Weinberg would say:
“Never give up––get tougher instead.”

Let us pray for the Members of Congress
and this great Nation:
God, please
grant us clarity and courage
to always do right
and never give up on our principles.

God bless the United States of America.
