Care with a prayer
A frightening war has disrupted life in Ukraine.
Join Momentum in supporting our sisters, their families, and the entire Jewish community in Ukraine.
Sign up to be matched with a citizen of Ukraine.
Share their name and invite others to pray, too.
Your prayers can make a world of difference.
You can pray from your heart, in any way that feels right and personal, or you could use this suggested prayer*:
May it be Your will, Adonai, our God, and God of our ancestors, That You annul war and bloodshed from the world, And that You extend a vast and wonderful peace to the world.
Nation shall no longer ״take up sword against nation; they shall never again know war.”
Rather, may all the Earth’s inhabitants recognize and know the essential truth:
That we’ve not come into this world for strife and divisiveness,
Nor for hatred, provocation, or bloodshed;
We’ve come to this world only to encounter You, Holy Blessed One, forever, That through us be manifested what is written:
“I shall grant peace in the land, And you shall rest without fear, And I will remove vicious beasts from the land, And no sword will pass through your land.” And let us say, Amen
– Rabbi Natan Sternhartz (1780-1844), Likkutei Tefilot, II, 53, Ukraine
