Benediction by Rabbi Lauren Berkun at the Democratic National Convention (2020)

Contribute a translation Source (English)

God,
you have been a refuge for us
in every generation
as we conclude this convention
from the safety of our homes
we pray for a national home
where security,
dignity,
and prosperity,
abound for all its inhabitants

Oh Lord,
our guardian who neither slumbers nor sleeps,
awaken us to the tireless task
of perfecting our home in this great land
built on foundations of freedom,
justice,
and equality.
Teach us
to number our days
that we may attain a heart of wisdom.
Strengthen us each day
in our sacred duty to promote leaders
who will transform crisis into hope,
challenge into opportunity,
cruelty into compassion,
and hate into love.

So may it be your will
and let us say: Amen.
