Leader: Pour the third cup of wine 

GRACE  (read responsively)

A full grace... a graceful toast... to us to where we each come from

to where we’re going and how we’re changing

to being where we are and who we are


to what we can share

to what we can’t share -- yet

to our joys and to our struggles which in full times we know are connected

which in harder times isolate us

to our efforts to our faith

to our determination

to our fears, tears, laughter, hugs and kisses


to wisdom, to study, alone and in groups to our books and tools, to toys, to materials, raw and fine, to work, to meetings, to sleep

to our eyes -- which fortunately also read Haggadot and see mountains and faces, flowers and bodies and occasionally sunshine


to the times we fall down

to the times we pick ourselves up

to the times friends help us up


to the shoulders we cry on

to the arms that hold us

to the strength in each of us


to our work

to our play

to our loving

to our growth

to LIFE...

L’chaim to the women who have passed this year

Leader : The Blessing after the Meal concludes by drinking the Third Cup of wine

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יי אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם בּוֹרֵא פְּרִי הַגָפֶן.

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