From the Seventh Candle we except the challenge to become beacons of lights and builders of peace. Hallowed and enhanced may God be throughout the world.
May God's sovereignty soon be accepted during our life and the life of all Israel. And let us say: Amen.
May their memory endure, may it inspire truth and loyalty in our lives, in our religious commitment and tasks. May their memory be a blessing and sign of peace for all humanity.
And let us say all together: Amen.

"Let there be peace on earth"

We end our worship by reciting together the words foundon the wall of a cellar in Cologne, Germany, where Jews hidfrom the Nazis:

I believe,
I believe in the sun,
Even when it is not shining.
I believe in love
Even when feeling it not.
I believe in God
Even when God is silent

Let us seek peace and pursue it
Today and forever.
