Nivonimer Sarah Levine’s Bracha!
Yom Huledet Sameach (Happy Birthday) to Nivonimer Sarah Levine!
This summer, edat ha-Nivonim studied brachot (blessings). At one point during the summer, each Nivonimer wrote their own bracha or chose a particular bracha that spoke to them. Sarah's favorite bracha, that she chose, was t'filat haderech (the bracha said before beginning a journey):
My it be Your will, Adonai our God and God of our ancestors, to guide us in peace, to sustain us in peace, to lead us to our desired destination in health and joy and peace, and to bring us home in peace. Save us from every enemy and disaster on the way, and from all calamities that threaten the world. Bless the work of our hands. May we find grace, love and compassion in Your sight and in the sight of all who see us. Hear our supplication, for You to listen to prayer and supplication. Praised are You, Adonai who hears prayer.
