Bridge over river in London

Author of life, Grant peace and consolation To the victims and the injured After the attack at Westminster, Where the heart of a democratic nation was attacked In an act of calculated terror.

Source and Creator, Grant a perfect rest under your tabernacle of peace To the victims of this attack, Whose lives were cut off In an act of witless aggression. Remember the survivors of this horror. Grant them shelter and solace, Comfort and consolation, Blessing and courage. May their healing — And the healing of this nation — Continue with devotion and courage. We also remember the victims...

Plank of salmon garnished with peppercorns lemon slices and herbs

I love serving light foods that are naturally kosher for Passover. With so much matzah, vegetable and fish dishes are often a welcome addition in my home.
