For Shabbat Noach: A Prayer for Creation

Rabbi David Seidenberg has provided us with a prayer focused on global climate disruption (aka "global warming"), healing the skies, and the original blessing of creation. Rabbi Seidenberg writes, "The liturgy is partly based on P'ri Eitz Hadar (the first published Tu Bish'vat seder), and on the Sefardi liturgy for Sukkot. It can be used after Torah reading every Shabbat, alongside prayers for the government, Israel, peace (in many synagogues), and the congregation. It could also be used many other times, e.g. after the counting of the omer or on Lag B'Omer."
