We now refill our wine glasses one last time and open the front door to invite the prophet Elijah to join our seder. In the Bible, Elijah was a fierce defender of God to a disbelieving people. At the end of his life, rather than dying, he was whisked away to heaven. Tradition holds that he will return in advance of messianic days to herald a new era of peace, so we set a place for Elijah at many joyous, hopeful Jewish occasions, such as a baby’s bris and the Passover seder.
,אֵלִיהָּֽו הַנבִָּיא, אֵלִיהָּֽו הַתִּשְׁבִּי
בִּמְהֵרָה בְימֵָֽנו יבָוֹא אֵלֵֽינוּ
,עִם מָשִֽׁיחַ עִם מָשִֽׁיחַ בֶּן דָוּדִ
.עִם מָשִֽׁיחַ עִם מָשִֽׁיחַ בֶּן דָוּדִ

Elijah the prophet, the returning, the man of Gilad: return to us speedily, in our days with the messiah, son of David.
