The highway cones of peace

The seasonal Jewish New Year celebration, Rosh Hashana, has begun. Jews around the world will be attending services for ten days. Here in Rochester, New York, there are a large number of Jews, especially in the southeast quandrant of Monroe County, where I happen to live.

Temple Beth El, on Winton Road South, sits directly across the street from the First Unitarian Church of Rochester. Beth El’s parking lot can’t hold all the cars that show up for Rosh Hashana so, as in previous years, they use the Unitarian Church’s parking lot, across the street. Orange highway cones are set out in a row that crosses the street to designate the pedestrian crossing; the path that connects the Jews and the Unitarians in cooperation.

These orange highway cones are a welcomed sign; they signify peace between cultures in a 2008 world where it seems there is more inter-cultural strife than ever before.

Amen for the orange highway cones! We need to distribute them throughout the world.
