World AIDS Day (December 1) is dedicated to raising awareness of the global pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection. AIDS has dramatically affected communities around the world and shaped our lives, both by the deaths of so many victims and by the altered lives of people living with AIDS or the HIV virus.

This World AIDS Day Prayer was found in Congregation Sha’ar Zahav’s Siddur Sha’ar Zahav: The All-Inclusive Siddur. Page 443 HIV/AIDS © Rabbi Eric Weiss. Several additional kavanot can be found within Siddur Sha’ar Zahav.
