On this episode of Jewish prayer. I'm focusing on prayers of peace. A universal truth in Christianity, Judaism and Islam is the idea of treating others the way we want to be treated. Or Love your neighbor as yourself. This is often referred to the Golden rule.
In 2015 I lived in Jerusalem as part of my training to become a rabbi, I was fortunate to go on a trip to East Jerusalem sponsored by Encounter. The purpose of the trip was to listen to Palestinians tell their stories about their realities of living in Jerusalem.
Below is the video of me singing this prayer for peace on my balcony in Jerusalem
Here is the audio if you just want to listen.
