Two interesting things to mention…
Caroline Glick, deputy managing editor for the Jerusalem Post, wrote an opinion piece prior to Rosh Hashanah titled “A Prayer for 5776.” As usual she has intelligent observations on world events.
Also, over the Rosh Hashanah holiday in Jerusalem, violence broke out. In case you had not heard, this article titled “Terror Attacks and Riots: A Violent Holiday in Jerusalem” from JerusalemOnline.com might be of interest. The incident prompted meetings by the Israeli government on whether sharper penalties are needed for rock-throwers.
Let’s keep Israel and Jerusalem in prayer throughout this holy season.
