Blessing the Children

Parents recite the following blessing over their children at the start of the Passover meal:

יְבָרֶכְךָ אֲדוֹנָי וְיִשְׁמְרֶךָ
יָאֵר אֲדוֹנָי פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ וִיחֻנֶּךָּ
יִשָּׂא אֲדוֹנָי פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ וְיָשֵׂם לְךָ שָׁלוֹם

Yevarechecha Adonai ve-yishmereicha
Ya-er Adonai panav eilecha ve-ichunecha
Yissa Adonai panav eilecha ve-yasem lecha shalom


May God bless you and watch over you.
May God's face shin upon you and be gracious to you.
May God's face be lifted up to you and grant you peace.
