Let us raise our cups to signify our gratitude for life, and for the joy of knowing inner growth, which gives human life its meaning. And with raised cups, together let us say: Group: Na-eem ha-kha-yeem ba-olam-- We are awed by all life in the world. Na-eem ha-kha-yeem ba-adam-- How beautiful is the life of humankind. Reader 1: Let us all now drink the first cup of wine. Group sings: Heyveynu shalom aleichem (3 times) Heyveynu shalom, shalom, shalom aleichem!

ברוך אתה יהוה אלהינו מלך העולם בורא פרי הגפן

Blessed are you, Lord our God, King of the universe Creator of the fruit of the vine.
