New Year On Coming Optimistically Hope Than Previous One This Year Will Be Better

They anyone familiar with Israel knows, this place is full of the highest highs and the lowest lows. For someone seeking a parve Jewish lifestyle, Israel is not the place. Thus, against the backdrop of the beautiful moment described above was the recent tragic terrorist attack that claimed the lives of four people, including both the mother and father of six children truly gut wrenching.

With that kind of pressure, maybe it's no wonder that it took a team of rabbis 12 years to complete the new prayer book. By every measure, though, the result is a remarkable volume that overflows not only with the spiritual richness of the liturgy, but with wide-ranging commentaries and perspectives on the holidays in Jewish history, tradition and theology.

The US-brokered talks between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas will face their first major hurdle later this month when an Israeli settlement moratorium expires.
