May the One who blessed our foremothers Sarah, Rivkah, Rachel and Leah bless the young girl daughter of ________ who has reached the age of twelve.
May our Father in Heaven, Merciful Father protect her and guard her spirit. He should remove from her all illness and save her from any dis-tress and harm. Let her father and mother rejoice with her, and let her find favor and good understanding in the eyes of God and the eyes of man.

Amen, May this be Your Will.
