May the source of strength,
Who blessed the ones before us,
Help us find the courage to make our lives a blessing,
and let us say, Amen.
Mi shebeirach imoteinu
M’kor habrachah l’avoteinu
מִּי שֶׁבֵּרַךְ אִמוֹתֵינוּ מְקוֹר הַבְּרָכָה לְאֲבוֹתֵינוּ

The renewal of body, the renewal of spirit,

Prayer said upon washing hands for sacred purposes:

Baruch atah Adonai eloheinu melech ha’olam
asher kidshanu b’mitzvotav vitzivanu al netilat yadayim.
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה הָ׳ אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם אֲשֶׁר קִדְּשָׁנוּ בְּמִצְוֹתָיו וְצִוָּנוּ עַל נְטִילַת יָדַיִם

Blessed are you Adonai, our God, sovereign over all time and space,
who sanctifies us with your mitzvot and enjoins us to elevate our hands.
