Thanksgiving celebrates the many gifts in our lives. Please consider adding some sharing with those around your table beginning with “I am grateful for…”
May your harvests of gratitude add to your days of happiness.
The prayer below, composed by Rabbi Naomi Levy, is a good way to sum up the words that were shared at your table.
Blessings to you and your family of a happy Thanksgiving,
Your Rabbi, Elie
A Prayer for the Thanksgiving Feast
For the laughter of the children,
For my own life breath,
For the abundance of food on this table,
For the ones who prepared this sumptuous feast,
For the roof over our heads,
The clothes on our backs,
For our health,
And our wealth of blessings,
For this opportunity to celebrate with family and friends,
For the freedom to pray these words
In any language,
In any faith,
In this great country,
Whose landscape is as vast and beautiful as her inhabitants.
Thank You, God, for giving us all these. Amen.
