It's 5763 on the Jewish

It’s 5763 on the Jewish calendar and my family and I celebrated heartily yesterday at synagogue and at dinner later.
A few prayers stood out and I thought I would highlight one that I liked, for both its austerity and timeliness:
To be just, upright, and faithful:
let this and this alone give joy.
To reach as high as one may dare,
and do no hurt, and kill no hope:
let this and this alone give joy.
O when will arrogance end
and wickedness cease,
and when will tyrants be no more?
On that day, rejoice!
The faithful will rejoice,
and all who breathe be glad.
