Question: What are your hopes and wishes for the new year?


 

 


Off the bat, I hope that this year I will get married and have children. I also hope to continue down the path of cultivating my faith in God, which is the key to all spiritual blessings. I wish peace to all Klal Yisrael and that more Jews will take steps to make aliyah. I also hope for a positive change in our future president.

My wishes are focused on Israel; I hope she emerges strong, with peace, and continues to be a beacon to people everywhere. I also want to spread the message of Jewish hope, as detailed in a book I wrote called Symphony on Fire: A Story of Music and Spiritual Resistance During the Holocaust, which celebrates the Jewish commitment to life and the triumph of the human spirit.

An end to personal and collective acrimony and a flourishing of ahavas chinam. I hope this will help bring about the coming of Moshiach speedily and in our time so that we can reunite with our loved ones in olam habah.

— Eli Chomsky, Jewish Press copy editor

 

 

 


I suppose a consolidation of everything I would want for the new year would be everything falling in its place and occurring at the right time. I also wish stability for Israel. Being that this is my senior year at Pratt I hope it will be a successful one that culminates in my getting a good job.

Israel should have a strong and successful army. I wish good health for everyone because once you have that, everything else falls into place.
