In keeping with the Rosh Hashana spirit, this week’s Good News Friday is going to focus on inspiring and uplifting posts.
Here’s a fantastic video of a huge slichot (penitential prayers) service at the Kotel this week. The sheer number of people turned these slichot into a highly emotional event:
How I wish I could have been there.
Next we have the most incredible, heart-warming, inspiring and surreal story I’ve heard in a long time. I received it by email and whatssapp from friends.
I challenge you not to have a dry eye at the end!
This next video is from the prayer service of Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, when the cantor beseeches G-d to listen to his voice, and to grant him the sweetness of voice and the words to represent the congregation to G-d. It’s one of my favourite prayers of the High Holydays, and this version is particularly beautiful, sung by two of Israel’s most popular religious singers, Yitzchak Meir and Udi Davidi.
And to close this week’s installment on a slightly lighter note… (NOT to be tried at home! 😀 )
And here’s a cheeky goodbye, taking into account the dreadful weather and sandstorm we’re struggling through:
Shabbat Shalom everyone! (I hope to have a Rosh Hashana post up on Sunday).
