Rosh Hashanah: God of Israel and Iran and Aleppo, God of Latrun and Zion Square

Every year, we make the same wish. And every year, the tragic colors of that year make the substance of the wish entirely different.

God of Abraham, and of Iran, and of Aleppo, on this, the dawn of Rosh Hashanah, a new year, we say these words to leave an old year behind, Tichleh Shanah V'kil'loteha: May this year finally end, and with it, all of its curses.
