A friend shared a New Year’s resolution card with me (pictured); it was originally published in 1946 in an Argentinian Jewish newspaper in the Yiddish language. It features a bandaged figure labelled “the world” (die velt), shaking hands with an angel labelled “Peace” (frieden). The card read: A New Year Blessing! It is the will of all that lives forever: This year, you shall make peace with each other! Amen!”
This old card my friend sent tells me only one thing; 66 years later, Palestinian suffering continues, and peace has not yet been realized in the region.
