We kindle this light in honor of hope.
May we never lose heart in our quest for justice.

We kindle this light in honor of action.
May we never mistake wishing for doing.

We kindle this light in honor of nature.
May our eyes never dim to her wonders nor our ears grow deaf to her cries of pain.

We kindle this light in honor of unity.
May we celebrate our differences, and yet have the courage to see beyond them.

We kindle this light in honor of knowledge.
May we free ourselves from opinion that we might open ourselves to truth.

We kindle this light in honor of kindness.
May we cultivate compassion in thought, word, and deed.

We kindle this light in honor of heroism.
May we never surrender to tyranny no matter how dear we hold the tyrant.
-Rami M. Shapiro

Why make an account?

Because why use any of your precious brain cells to remember where you kept those great readings that you’ll use someday at Jeffrey’s B Mitzvah? Make an account, keep the readings there. Easy peasy. The only thing you’ll need to remember is your password, and from personal experience that’s hard enough.
