We have lived through another horribly difficult week where hatred and violence scarred us deeply. With Shabbat let us find comfort and the strength to rise above these things and work for a time when we can live in safety and love, security and peace.
Ufros Aleinu Sukkat Shlomekha, taken from the Hashkiveinu prayer, Spread over us Your Shelter of Peace.
ופרש עלינו סכת שלומך Ufros Aleinu Sukkat Shlomecha
Spread over us your canopy of peace
ותקננו בעצה טובה מלפניך Vetaknenu B’aytza Tovah Milfanecha
And repair us with good council before you
And rescue us
