May it be the will [before the Lord our God and the God of our ancestors] that the nation sitting in Zion will merit years of freedom, quiet, productivity, education and good health and that our children may never fear at all.

יהי רצון [מלפניך יהוה אלהינו ואלהי אבותנו ואמותנו] 
שהפתק אשר שם אנכי בקלפי
יצטרף לעוד אלפי פתקים
שיבטיחו מנהיגות שפויה
שתחזק את הערכים הדמוקרטיים,
תשאף לשלום עם שכנינו,
תפריד דת ומדינה,
תדאג לחלשים
ותגן על העובדים,
תילחם בשחיתות
ותנהיג באמצעות הדוגמא האישית.
May it be the will [before YHVH our elo’ah the elo’ah of our ancestors] 
that this ticket which I am placing in my ballot
will join thousands of other tickets
that will promise reasoned leadership
that will strengthen democratic values,
aspire towards peace with our neighbors,
separate religion and state,
be concerned with the weak
and protect the laborers,
fight corruption
and exercise leadership through personal role modeling.
ויהי רצון [מלפניך יהוה אלהינו ואלהי אבותנו ואמותנו] 
שהעם היושב בציון
יזכה לשנים של חופש,
שקט,
עשייה,
חינוך
ובריאות טובה
ושילדינו לא יפחדו כלל.‏
May it be the will [before YHVH our elo’ah the elo’ah of our ancestors] 
that the nation sitting in Tsiyon
will merit years of freedom,
quiet,
productivity,
education
and good health
and that our children may never fear at all.

Prayer by Chaim Hames. Translation by Jonah Rank.
