The סֵֽפֶר תּוֹרָה (Torah scroll) is held while the following prayer is said.
הַנּוֹתֵן תְּשׁוּעָה לַמְּלָכִים
מַלְכוּתוֹ מַלְכוּת כׇּל־עוֹלָמִים.
He who gives salvation to kings
and dominion to princes,
whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom —
may He bless
our Sovereign Lady, Queen Elizabeth (Ⅱ)
Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
Charles, Prince of Wales
and all the Royal Family.
מֶֽלֶךְ מַלְכֵי הַמְּלָכִים
וּמִכׇּל־צָרָה וְיָגוֹן יַצִּילֶֽהָ.
May the supreme King of kings
in His mercy preserve the Queen in life,
and deliver her from all trouble and sorrow.
אֶת צְבָא הַמַּלְכָּה.
May He bless and protect
Her Majesty’s Armed Forces.
רוּחַ חָכְמָה וּבִינָה
לְהַחֲזִיק שְׁלוֹם הַמַּלְכוּת
וְלַעֲשׂוֹת חֶֽסֶד וֶאֶמֶת עִם־כׇּל־יִשְׂרָאֵל׃
May He put into her heart
and into the hearts of all her counsellors,
a spirit of wisdom and understanding
that they may uphold the peace of the realm,
advance the welfare of the nation
and deal kindly and justly with all the House of Israel.
יִפְרֹשׂ אָבִֽינוּ שֶׁבַּשָׁמַֽיִם
וּבָא לְצִיּוֹן גּוֹאֵל
In her days and in ours,
may our Heavenly Father spread
the tabernacle of peace
over all the dwellers on earth;
and may the redeemer come to Zion;
and let us say Amen.
In 2014, the formula of “haNoten Teshua” suggested by the Office of the Chief Rabbi of the UK and the Commonwealth, was amended by the chief rabbi, Ephraim Mirvis, to include a short passage in recognition of the United Kingdom’s armed forces.
