On the morning of March 23, 2003, while my wife and I were reading the Sunday newspaper, she spotted an interesting text in PARADE Magazine entitled A Prayer for the World. This prayer, written by Rabbi Harold S. Kushner (author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People), so impressed her, that she immediately brought it to my attention, hoping that I might find it suitable to set to music. Upon first reading, the directness of these words moved me deeply. I decided to compose a choral setting as soon as I could secure the rights to set the text. It is my sincere hope that, in conjunction with the music, Rabbi Kushner's nature-inspired, nonsectarian prayer for universal tolerance, will reach an even wider public. -Stanley M. Hoffman.
