Unless you have been living under a rock the past few years, we have no doubt you have caught a glimpse of Lena Corwin's amazing peace towels. After a year of intense talks and brainstorming sessions, JST and Lena have joined forces to create a signature peace towel. The towel comes in a cream and light green/blue color with the colors reversed on the back side. The Hebrew text reads "may a great peace embrace the whole universe".
A few words from Lena on our collaboration and the text:
"I found this text through the Open Siddur Project–– an open-source, community contributed archive for those sharing prayers and crafting their own prayer books.
Rabbi Hillel Lavery-Yisraëli serves as the rabbi of Beth Jacob Synagogue in Hamilton, Canada. He is an activist for human rights, women’s rights, anti-racism, 2S LGBTQIA+ rights and basic income.
I found the text really meaningful, and soothing in a time of great pain throughout the world.
Prayer for Universal Peace, by Rabbi Hillel Lavery-Yisraëli
May we merit to bring about the day when war and bloodshed cease, and a great peace embraces the whole universe. “No nation will lift up a sword to another, and the art of war will no longer be studied.” (Isaiah 2:4)
May we live to see the leaders of all the nations inspired to do good with their peoples and with all other peoples of the world, bringing about the fulfillment of the Scriptural blessing, “I will bring peace to the Earth, and you will lie down with no one to terrify you, and I will bring calm to all vicious creatures on Earth, and the sword will no longer pass in your Land.” (Leviticus 26:6)
Let knowledge fill the Earth as water fills the ocean, and let all people of all ethnicities, races, beliefs, genders and orientations enjoy true equality, security, safety and livelihood, in a true spirit of co-existence and cooperation.
And let us say, Amen. "
