Grace After Meals Meditation

By Ritualwell

מָה שֶׁאָכַלְנוּ יִהְיֶה לַשֹּׂבַע וּמַה שֶׁשָּׁתִינוּ יִהְיֶה לִרְפוּאָה וּמַה שֶׁהוֹתַרְנוּ יִהְיֶה לִבְרָכָה 

 בְּרִיך רַחֲמָנָא מַלְכָּא     דְעַלְמָא     מָרֵיהּ דְהַאי פִּיתָּא    

 

Mah she-akhalnu yihiyeh l’sova
u-mah she-shatinu yihiyeh lir’fuah
u-mah she-hotarnu yihiyeh liv’rakhah

B’rikh rakhamana, malka de'alma
marey d’hai pita

That which we ate, may it satiate us;
And that which we drank, may it give us good health;
And that which is left over, may we see it as a blessing;

Blessed are You, Source of Mercy, for You are the master of
this bread.

Join Rabbi Vivie Mayer and Ritualwell for an online course on forgiveness in preparation for Yom Kippur. In three sessions during the month of Elul, we will study, connect, and create as we immerse in the topic of forgiveness. 

Wednesdays, 12pm–1:15pm EST, August 8, 15, 22
