TIMES OF CONFLICT

Times of Conflict

Sirens down, Shofar sounds

From the piercing wail of despair
To the fragile tone of hope

From a month of fleeing evil
To a month of chasing good

From iron dome explosions
To powerful tekiah blasts

From weeks of destroying tunnels
To weeks of building bridges 

From days on which death was forced upon us
To days on which we can choose life 

From a time that we were being judged by the world
To a time we are being judged by heaven

The shofar sounds, do we know what to do?
