A Prayer for Connectedness and Repentance

baalshemtovThis prayer is based on a kvittel attributed to the Baal Shem Tov from the eve of Rosh Hashanah 1756. Here, we extrapolate his personal requests vis-a-vis his fellows to requests of all Israel vis-a-vis the other nations.

We request health and a good long life. May we merit forming a bond with the souls of every nation, connecting them to their roots. May all of our enemies repent and become our friends.
