For the closing of borders

For the sin of silence,
For the sin of indifference,
For the secret complicity of the neutral,
For the closing of borders,
For the washing of hands,
For the crime of indifference,
For the sin of silence,
For the closing of borders,
For all that was done,
For all that was not done,
Let there be no forgetfulness before the Throne of Glory;
Let there be remembrance within the human heart;
And let there at last be forgiveness
When your Children, O God,
are free and at peace.

From Gates of Repentance, the Progressive Jewish prayerbook for the High Holy Days, Yom Kippur Afternoon Service, p439
