Prayers for voting
November 07, 2016
I've shared these resources before, but they bear repeating, I think:
A Prayer For Voting by Rabbi David Seidenberg
A Prayer For Voting by Rabbi Sami Barth
First Step: Lech Lecha -- a Torah poem written eight years ago on Election Day, when Election Day fell (as it does this year) during the week of parashat Lech Lecha
And here's an essay I haven't shared on this blog before (though those of you who follow me on Facebook may already have seen it): Vote Your Privilege by Rabbi David Evan Markus. He writes, "This year I'll cast my vote on behalf of... a politics worthy of everyone – whatever they look like, whomever they love, whether or however they pray." Amen v'amen.
May the results of tomorrow's elections in the United States bring us closer to a world of hope, justice, and opportunity for all.
