Nirtzah marks the conclusion of the seder. Our bellies are full, we have had many glasses of wine, we have told stories and sung songs, and now it is time for the evening to come to a close.

At the end of the seder, we honor but modify the tradition of declaring, “Next year in Jerusalem!” by declaring "Next year in peace!"

And so we conclude:

Now our seder is over

According to custom and law.

As we were worthy to celebrate it this year

So may we perform it in future years.

We pray that God brings health and healing

To all the people of the world, as we say…

לְשָׁנָה הַבָּאָה בִּשָׁלום

L’shana haba'ah b'shalom
