Mi Sheberakh Imoteinu Sarah, Rivkah, Leah, v’Rakhel

Shifra, Puah, Yokhekhed, Miriam v’Batya

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Shirley Chisholm, Rosa Parks, Diane Nash, Hillary Clinton
Bless and safeguard Kamala Harris
The first female
The first Black
The first South Asian Woman to enter the White House.
Hodu Ladonai Ki Tov, Ki L’olam Hasdo
Give thanks to God for God is good;
God’s lovingkindness is everlasting.
We pray that all women in this country, all daughters of immigrants, all descendents of slaves know in this moment that they too can become Vice President of the United States or whatever they dream to be.
May we celebrate this moment even as we never tire of the work of equality and justice.
May the beauty and diversity of God’s creation be manifest in every corner of this country, and let us say Amen!
