Source (Hebrew) Translation (English)

מוֹדה אֲנִי לְפָנֶיךָ וּלְךָ,
עַל הַחֶסֶד וְעַל הָרְפוּאָה
וְעַל עֲצִירַת הַמַּגֵּפָה.
עַל הַזְּכוּת לִרְאוֹת פְּנֵי אָדָם בְּהִתְגַּלּוּתָם
וְעַל הַרְחָבַת צְעָדֵינוּ בָּאָרֶץ הַגְּדוֹלָה וְהַיָּפָה.
I give thanks before You and to You
for the compassion and healing,
for putting an end to this plague,
for the privilege of seeing human faces reemerging,
and for appreciating this expansive and beautiful earth as we stride forward.

נַקְשִׁיב לְרוּחוֹת הַשִּׁנּוּי וְנִדְבַּק בָּן.
נִתְחַיֵּב לִשְׁמֹר עַל עוֹלָם וְאָדָם.
עִם הֲסָרַת הַמַּסֵּכָה
נַגְדִּיל טוֹבָה וּבְרָכָה,
וְעַד מְהֵרָה יֵאָמֵר בְּכָל הָעוֹלָם:
”וְהַמַּגֵּפָה נֶעֱצָֽרָה“ (במדבר יז:טו חלק)
Let us listen to the winds of change and adhere to them.
Let us promise to preserve our world and each other.
With the removal of the mask
let us increase the good and the blessing around us,
and may it be speedily said all over the world:
“And the plague ceased” (Numbers 17:15 part).

“A Prayer for Removing the Mask,” was composed by Rabbi Dr. Dalia Marx and Rabbi Inbar Bluzer Shalem in June 2021. The English translation was made by Alex Cicelsky.
