Elul and September

I had made this video tribute two years ago. It did not come out quite the way I wanted it to but it does reflect my love of New York City. After 9/11 on approaching the heaped rubble of Ground Zero through deserted streets, past barricades through foul air, the pervasive sense of loss and desolation grew worse and in my mind I heard, "Yerushalayim Shel Zahav", the song that when composed reflected a divided Jerusalem, part held in enemy hands, a wall cutting through its heart. The loss of two cities, the images or rubble and deserted streets, of catastrophe hovering over all and a common enemy and a love for both cities are reflected here.

Shana Tova and may there be an end to catastrophes for us all and may the reign of evil be broken on earth

Yes and how much have we already forgotten by instead of doing what needs to be done get entangled in party politics and political correctness. Good Job Sultan.
