Behold My Lulav From Succot By Anael Atara (Meryl Joblin)And after the insanity of the terrorist attacks, I divided my palm frond and willow and myrtle into 2 sections reminding me of the division of the land of Israel and its inhabitants. I am called to use my 2 lulavs in the following manner.Heart level. Crossing my heart to express its brokenness. To acknowledge the ancestral trauma in all its manifestations.I shake it.To the E for new perspective. To rise above like a soaring bird seeing with eyes of the heart visioning a new future.To the S for passion of desire for peace and safety to all.To the W for completion of the trauma. To move forward with freedom peace and safety for all.To the N for honoring the most recent ancestors, those that were killed and died before their time. To our own lineage. May we honor them and for the angelic protection which we are calling in at this critical time in our history. To the heavens to beseech Shechina for forgiveness for our ignorance and greed and to beg for an end to this madness.To the earth to honor the magnificence of nature which grounds and sustains us. Nature who herself has been suffering. As we sweep the fronds up between our legs through the root chakra, let us feel that earth connection and its energy rise through our Being.As I swirl both lulavs in front, let the energy vortex eliminate hate and eradicate trauma, clearing a fresh path.As I swirl them to the sides, let them be like the wings of eagles soaring above the current insanity making way for compassion, freedom, justice, loving kindness, and even joy. And finally, let them come together reuniting at the heart level, bringing unification of mind, body, and spirit. If you still have your lulav, perhaps you can join in this practice as we send healing to Mother Earth, all victims of violence and to our own selves as we navigate this tumultuous time. -Words and photo shared with permission by Anael Atara (Meryl Joblin) ...

October 9, 2023 | 24 Tishrei, 5784 Our hearts are aching. We pray for the souls of those lost and for the healing of those hurt. ALEPH condemns, in the strongest terms, the atrocious acts perpetrated against innocent lives. We seek the immediate release of all who have been taken hostage. We stand in solidarity with the people of Israel, who are currently enduring a harrowing and ongoing violent assault led by Hamas. This is a dangerous time, one filled with grief, sorrow, anger, and despair. We urge restraint on all sides to not let revenge lead to the spilling of more innocent blood. While our hearts are heavy and our spirits angered, we hold steadfast to our intrinsic Jewish values of cherishing life, of love, and of peace. We believe in the power of unity and the strength that comes from a collective desire for tranquility and security for all people in this beloved region. We send prayers for comfort and healing to the families of those who have been lost. We must hold steadfast to hope for a better future. In the face of adversity, let us remember the words from the Book of Psalms: "Seek peace and pursue it" (Psalm 34:14). Our commitment to peace does not waver, even amidst the current chaos, pain and suffering. We will continue to support skillful efforts that seek a peaceful resolution among all people who cherish the land of Israel/Palestine and call it home. We encourage our community to stay informed, to engage in constructive dialogue, and to support one another during these trying times. Together, we will navigate through this darkness and, God willing, emerge into a brighter future where peace reigns supreme. ... See MoreSee Less
