    Maybe Bibi and his cabinet could reflect on the Rabbi's words. Happy new year. Rabbi Moshe Sherer.... As we all know, three times a day, every Jew takes three steps back at the conclusion of Shemoneh Esrei and says, "Oseh Shalom (May He who makes peace)..." We bow to the left, to the right and then forward as we say these words. Why must we step back and bow? This, explained Rabbi Sherer, is to teach us that there is really only one way for a person to truly achieve peace among people. He must "step back," meaning, he must drop his personal interests and not cling stubbornly to his personal viewpoint. Instead, he must concern himself with what is truly good for everyone and he must strive to understand the viewpoint of his adversary. But merely stepping back is not sufficient. After he has convinced himself to think openly and objectively, he must take action for the sake of peace. He must turn to the left, to the right and to the center, each time "bending," that is, compromising a little. Humble yourself and compromise, for only then can you achieve true peace.
