רִבּוֹנוֹ שֶׁל עוֹלָם,
עוֹשֶׂה שָׁלוֹם וּבוֹרֵא אֶת הַכֹּל, (לפי ישעיה מה:ז)
בָּרֵךְ אֶת יְצִירֵי כַּפֶּיךָ בְּבִרְכַּת חַיִּים.
חֵי הָעוֹלָמִים, נְצֹר תֵּבֵל וּמְלוֹאָהּ.
פְּרֹשׂ כְּנָפֶיךָ עַל עֹשֶׁר בְּרִיאָתְךָ
שֶׁהִרְעַפְתָ עָלֵינוּ בְּרֹב חַסְדְךָ,
לְמַעַן יוּכְלוּ בָּנֵינוּ וּבְנֵי בָנֵינוּ עַד דּוֹר אַחֲרוֹן
לִמְצוֹא אֲרוּכָה וָפֶלֶא בִּפְרִי יְצִירָתֶךָ.
Sovereign of the universe,
who makes peace and creates all,[1]  Cf. Isaiah 7:54.  sanctify all that Your hand has shaped, with the blessing of life.
Life giver of the worlds, preserve the earth and all therein.
Spread Your countenance over its multifaceted riches
which in Your abundant kindness You have bestowed upon us,
so that for all the generations to come, our children and our children’s children
may find wonder and healing in the fruits of Your labor.
הִפְקַדְתָּ אוֹתָנוּ בְּנֵי הָאָדָם,
עַל כָּל הָאָרֶץ וּבְרוּאֶיהָ,
כַּכָּתוּב: וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים,
נַעֲשֶׂה אָדָם בְּצַלְמֵנוּ כִּדְמוּתֵנוּ,
וְיִרְדּוּ בִדְגַת הַיָּם
וּבְעוֹף הַשָּׁמַיִם
וּבַבְּהֵמָה
וּבְכָל הָאָרֶץ
וּבְכָל הָרֶמֶשׂ הָרֹמֵשֹ עַל הָאָרֶץ. (בראשית א:כו)
אָנָּא, טַע בָּנוּ עֲנָוָה וּתְבוּנָה
לְהוֹקִיר אֶת יְפִי הַתֵּבֵל הַתְּלוּיָה עַל בְּלִימָה,
לְהִתְעַנֵּג עַל מְקוֹם חִיּוּתֵנוּ הַיְּחִידִי וְהַיִּחוּדִי,
לְתַקֵּן עוֹלָם וּלְהַנְחִילוֹ יָפֶה וּמְשֻׁפָּר לַדּוֹרוֹת הַבָּאִים.
חָנֵּנוּ בְּחָכְמַת לֵב לִשְׁמוֹר עַל שִׁפְעַת אוֹצְרוֹת תֵּבֵל
וּלְהִשְׁתַּמֵּשׁ בָּהֶם לְטוֹבָה בְּעוֹדֶנּוּ מַמְשִׁיכִים לְגַלּוֹת אֶת אֵין־סוֹף רָזֵיהֶם.
אַחֵד אֶת כָּל בְּנֵי אֱנוֹשׁ לְאַחֲרָיוּת מְשֻׁתֶּפֶת
לְמַעַן נִפְעַל לְעָתִיד טוֹב יוֹתֵר לַכֹּל.
You have conferred upon us humankind,
guardianship over the earth and all its beings,
as it is written: “And Elohim said,
we will make people in our image after our likeness
and entrust them with dominion over the fish of the sea
and over the birds of the heaven
and over the animals
and over all the earth
and over every creeping thing on the earth.”[2]  Genesis 1:26.  Please, instill in us the humility and insight
to appreciate our planet’s fragile beauty.
May we rejoice in our unique and extraordinary environment,
enhance it and bequeath it secure, to future generations.
As we continue to unravel the infinite mysteries of the world,
grant us the wisdom to utilize its myriad treasures sustainably and preserve them.
Unify us, all humanity, with a shared fate and communal responsibility,
so that we may act together for the sake of a better future for all.
יְהִי רָצוֹן מִלְּפָנֶיךָ,
יהוה אֱלֹהֵינוּ,
שֶׁתִּתֵּן עָלֵינוּ קַשְׁתְךָ,
כַּכָּתוּב: וְהָיְתָה הַקֶּשֶׁת בֶּעָנָן,
וּרְאִיתִיהָ לִזְכֹּר בְּרִית עוֹלָם בֵּין אֱלֹהִים
וּבֵין כָּל נֶפֶשׁ חַיָּה בְּכָל בָּשָׂר אֲשֶׁר עַל הָאָרֶץ. (בראשית ט:טז)
אֲדוֹן הַנִּפְלָאוֹת,
חַדֵּשׁ סֵדֶר עוֹלָמְךָ כְּקֶדֶם
וְהָגֵן עָלֵינוּ וְעַל הַבְּרִיאָה,
וְנִזְכֶּה לְהוֹדוֹת לְךָ וּלְהַלֶּלְךָ,
וְתִּמָּלֵא כָּל הָאָרֶץ כְבוֹדְךָ (לפי תהלים עב:יט)
לְנֶצַח נְצָחִים,
אָמֵן וְאָמֵן.
May it be Your will,
YHVH our elo’ah,
that You cast Your rainbow above us,
as it is written: “And the bow will be in the cloud,
and I will look at it and remember the eternal covenant between Elohim
and every living soul of all flesh that is on the earth.”[3]  Genesis 9:16.  Lord of wonders,
renew the world’s natural order as of old
and protect us and the environment
so that we may have the merit to thank and praise You
and may all the earth be filled with Your Kavod[4]  Cf. Psalms 72:19.  for eternity,
Amen and Amen.
