In memory and honor of those who lost their reputations, friends, family ties, and even their lives in the courageous effort to live and speak their truth. To those who were lonely pioneers in the struggle for our liberation and healing. To these, we dedicate the second cup.
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, בּוֹרֵא פְּרִי הַגָּפֶן
Baruch Atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech ha-olam, borei p’ree hagafen.
We praise God, Ruler of Everything, who creates the fruit of the vine.
