Haggadah Section: Bareich

Shir Hama-a-lot, b’shuv Adonai et- shivat Tzion hayinu k’cholmim.
Az y’malei s’chok pinu ul-shoneinu rina, az yomru vagoyim:
“Higdil Adonai la-a-sot im eileh.”
Higdil Adonai la-asot imanu,
hayinu s’meichim. Shuva Adonai
et sh’viteinu ka-afikim banegev. 
Hazor’im b’dima b’rina yik-tzoru.
Haloch yeileich uvacho, nosei meshech hazara. 

A song of ascents. When Adonai brought the exiles back to Zion it was like a dream. Then our mouths were filled with laughter and our tongues with song. Then was it said among the nations: “Adonai has done great things for them.” Truly Adonai has done great things for us, and we rejoiced. Bring us from exile, Adonai, as the streams return to the Negev; those who sow in tears shall reap in joy. Those who go out weeping, bearing sacks of seeds, shall return with joy, bearing their sheaves.

(ALL) Baruch hu u-varuch sh’mo. 
Let us thank God. Blessed is the name of God now and forever. With your permission, let us thank God whose food we have eaten. Blessed is God whose food we have eaten and through whose goodness we live. Blessed is God and Blessed is God’s name.

Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu melech ha-olam, hazan et ha-olam kulo b’tuvo b’chein b’chesed uv-rachamim, hu notein lechem l’chol-basar, ki l’olam chasdo, uv-tuvo hagadol tamid lo chasar lanu v’al yechsar lanu mazon l’olam va-ed. Ba-avur sh’mo hagadol, ki hu Eil zan um-farneis lakol, u-meitiv lakol hazan et hakol.

 Blessed is Adonai our God, Sovereign of the universe, who sustains the entire world with goodness, kindness and mercy. God gives food to all creatures, for God’s mercy is everlasting. Through God’s abundant goodness we have not lacked sustenance, and may we not lack sustenance forever, for the sake of God’s great name. God sustains all, does good to all, and provides food for all the creatures whom God has created. Blessed is Adonai, who provides food for all.

V’al hakol Adonai Eloheinu anachnu modim lach um-varchim otach yitbarach shimcha b’fi chol chai tamid l’olam va-ed, kakatuv: “V’achalta v’savata uveirachta et-Adonai Elohecha al ha-aretz hatova asher natan lach.” Baruch Atah Adonai, al ha-aretz v’al hamazon.
For all these blessings we thank Adonai our God with praise. May God’s name be praised by every living being forever, as it is written: “When you have eaten your fill, give thanks to Adonai your God for the good land which God has given you.” Blessed is Adonai for the land and its produce.

Uv-nei Y’rushalayim ir hakodesh bimheira v’yameinu.

May God rebuild Jerusalem, the holy city, speedily in our lifetime. 

Blessed is Adonai, who restores Jerusalem with mercy. Amen.

Harachaman, hu yishlach b’racha m’ruba babayit hazeh v’al shulchan zeh she-achainu alav.
Harachaman, hu y’variech et kol acheinu b’nei Yisrael han’tunim betzarah, v’yotzi-eim mei-afeilah l’orah.

May the Merciful One send abundant blessing upon this dwelling and the table at which we have eaten. May the Merciful One bless all of the children of Israel who are now oppressed and bring them from darkness into light. May the Merciful One grant us a day that shall be altogether good.

Oseh shalom bimromav hu ya-aseh shalom aleinu v’alkol-Yisrael, v’imru: Amein.

May the One who makes peace in the heavens let peace descend on all us and all of Israel, and let us say: Amen.

Adonai oz l’amo yitein Adonai

May Adonai give strength to our people; may Adonai bless our people with peace.

Third Cup of Wine

The third cup of wine is raised and the blessing is chanted. Afterwards, we drink the wine while reclining to the left.

Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu melech ha’olam, borei p’ri hagafen.

We praise You, Eternal God, Sovereign of the universe, who creates the fruit of the vine.
