A Bisl Torah

A Prayer for the Families of the Victims in the Manchester Bombing

R’bono shel Olam, Master of the Universe, do not allow our hearts to become complacent. We cannot afford to turn off the televisions or shut off our phones. Our babies—young women, men and children have been heart wrenchingly torn from this world because another a human being is unable to comprehend the miracle that we call life. God, teach us to respond. God, push us to reach out. When we see a picture of one of your murdered children, may we whisper prayers of strength for their loved ones and solace for their soul. Creator of all, do not let us become blind when someone else’s tragedy is too hard to watch. Kol HaOlam Kulo Gesher Tzar M’od. The entire world is a very narrow bridge. May we lead each other over the bridge of life, hand in hand, heart in heart, sharing in our joys and in our pain.
