רִבּוֹן עוֹלָמִים
וֶאֱלֹהֵי שָׁמַיִם וָאָרֶץ,
אֲשֶׁר הִבְטַחְתָּנוּ
”וְנָטַעְתִּי אֶתְכֶם וְלֹא אֶתּוֹשׁ“ (ירמיהו מב:י חלק)
חַזֵּק־נָא יָדֵינוּ
בְּבוֹאֵנוּ לָטַעַת בְּאַדְמַת אַרְצֶךָ
וּלְהַעֲמִיק שֹׁרֶשׁ בְּקַרְקַע אַרְצֵנוּ,
בְּהַמְשִׁיכֵנוּ אֶת מַעֲשֶׂה אַבְרָהָם אָבִינוּ,
כַּכָּתוּב: ”וַיִּטַּע אֶשֶׁל בִּבְאֵר שָׁבַע.“ (בראשית כא:לג חלק)
Master of worlds
and elo’ah of Heaven and Earth
that has promised us:
“I will plant you and not uproot you,”[1]  Jeremiah 42:10 partial  may you strengthen our hands
as we come to plant in the soil of your land,
and to deepen our roots in the earth of our land,
by continuing to do the deeds of Avraham our forefather,
as it is written “And he planted a tamarisk in Be’er Shava.”[2]  Genesis 21:33 partial 
בָּרֵךְ אֶת נְטִיעוֹתֵינוּ
וְהַעֲמֵק שָׁרְשֵׁיהֶן
כְּדִבְרֵי נְבִיאֵיךָ:
”וְאָנֹכִי נְטַעְתִּיךְ שׂוֹרֵק, כֻּלֹּה זֶרַע אֱמֶת,“ (ירמיהו ב:כא חלק)
”וְכָרַתִּי לָהֶם בְּרִית שָׁלוֹם…“ (יחזקאל לז:כו חלק)
”וְהוֹרַדְתִּי הַגֶּשֶׁם בְּעִתּוֹ,
גִּשְׁמֵי בְרָכָה יִהְיוּ.“ (יחזקאל לד:כו חלק)
May you bless our plantings
and deepen their roots,
as your prophet said:
“I planted you with noble vines, all with choicest seed,”[3]  Jeremiah 2:21 partial  “I will make a covenant of peace with them…”[4]  Ezekiel 37:26 partial  “…and I will cause the rainshowers to fall in their season;
there shall be showers of blessing.”[5]  Ezekiel 34:26 partial 
וִיהִי רָצוֹן שֶׁיִּתְקַיֵּם בָּנוּ,
בְּבָנֵינוּ וּבְנוֹתֵינוּ מִקְרָא שֶׁכָּתוּב:
”וְשַׂשְׂתִּי עֲלֵיהֶם לְהֵטִיב אוֹתָם
וּנְטַעְתִּים בָּאָרֶץ הַזֹּאת בֶּאֱמֶת.“ (ירמיהו לב:מא חלק)
And may it be your will that you will cause this to occur
for our sons and daughters, as the Scripture says:
“I will rejoice over them to do them good,
and I will plant them in this land in truth.”[6]  Jeremiah 32:41 partial 
הַנּוֹטְעִים בְּרִנָּה – בְּגִילָה יִבְצֹרוּ!
וּתְנֵנוּ בִּמְהֵרָה בְּיָמֵינוּ
אִישׁ תַּחַת גַּפְנוֹ וְתַחַת תְּאֵנָתוֹ,
וְנֹאמַר אָמֵן.
Those who sow in joy, may they harvest in happiness!
And may you place, quickly in our day,
everyone under their vine and under their fig tree.
And may we say Amen.

This prayer for planting was composed by Zeev Kainan for Tu biShvat (2018) for the Masorti Movement for Conservative Judaism in Israel. English translation by Miri Landau with edits by Aharon Varady.
