A Contemporary El Maley Rakhamim

light yellow tall grass with specks of white sunlight

Merciful, compassionate G-d:

Hold our loved ones close to your heart.

Let them be at peace.

May their deeds and teachings live in us always.

May they inspire us to live with justice and mercy

As our twin polestars.

Let their souls and our souls

Be bound as one.
