For All That Has Kept Us Alive: Humanist Shehekheyanu

By Machar: The Washington Congregation for Secular Humanistic Judaism
A Humanist version of the Shehekheyanu blessing for first experiences.

 

 

Let us bless the goodness which we have encountered in the world,
which has kept us alive and sustained us, and brought us to this moment.
N'-varekh et ha-tov              
asher pagash-nu ba-olam                  
she-hekheya-nu v'-kiyy'ma-nu,              
v'-higgi'a-nu la-z'man ha-zeh. Amen.

נְבָרֵךְ אֵת הַטּוֹב

אֲשֶׁר פָּגַשְׁנוּ בָּעוֹלָם

שֶׁהֶחֱיָנוּ וְקִיַּמְנוּ

וְהִגִּיעָנוּ לַזְּמָן הַזֶּה אָמֵן
