Blessing For Members of the 117th Congress

By Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, NCJW Scholar-in-Residence

May you serve your constituents with humility, gratitude, and integrity.
May you always remember that your greatest work is in the care for those who are most vulnerable; the empowerment of those who are most marginalized; the transformation of systems and structures for the better.
May you remain always curious, open, and eager to grow.
May you seek out the voices that may be unheard; may you listen; may you allow your understanding and perspective to shift and expand.
May you stay kind and gentle. May you regard others with compassion and generosity.
May this work help you grow into the leader your constituents need you to be.
May you speak out bravely against injustice.
May you make of your life a blessing.
