Creator of the universe,
as the Jewish New Year approaches,
we ready ourselves for transitions and growth;
beginnings and endings.
We anticipate repair,
learning,
and forward movement in our country,
and we prepare to handle challenges
together.
The core Jewish belief
imbuing this entire season
is that of return.
It is the idea that we are all born
pure and beautiful,
and as we move through our lives,
we make mistakes or transgress,
but every single day,
and every new year,
we have the power to return to our best selves
through soul searching,
healing,
and making amends.
This new year,
may each of us remember
that potential within ourselves.
May we return
to our best selves;
and as we do,
may we see the beauty,
inherent value,
and possibility for positive change
in all those around us.
Together,
may we co-create
a sweet new year.
Amen.
