מִי שֶׁבֵּרַךְ אֲבוֹתֵינוּ
אֲשֶׁר קָרָא לָנוּ יִשְׂרָאֵל
שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר שָׂרִיתָ עִם אֱלֹהִים, (בראשית לב:כט)
הוּא יְבָרֵךְ וִירַפֵּא אֶת אֵלּוּ מִבֵּינֵינוּ
הַנֶּאֱבָקִים בָּרְוָחָה הַנַּפְשִׁית.
May the One who blessed our ancestors
and named us Yisrael
[as it is said, “for you have striven (sarita) with divine beings” (Genesis 32:29)
bless and heal those among us
who struggle with mental well-being.
יְהִי רָצוֹן
שֶׁיַּכִּירוּ בְּכוֹחָם
וּבְחָסְנָם,
וְיִתְיַחֲסוּ לְעַצְמָם
בִּסְלִיחָה
וּבְסַבְלָנוּת,
וְיִמְצְאוּ עֶזְרָה,
חֶמְלָה
וּמַשְׁאַבִּים
בְּעֵת צָרָתָם.
May [it be your will
that] they acknowledge their own strength
and resilience,
treat themselves
with forgiveness
and patience,
and find help,
compassion,
and resources
when they need them.
הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא יַעֲנִיק לָאֵלּוּ מֵאִתָּנוּ
שֶׁאֵינָם חוֹוִים קְשִׁיִּם נַפְשִׁיּם
אֶת הַכֹּחַ,
הַחֹסֶן
וְהַיְּכֹלֶת
לְהַקְשִׁיב לְלֹא שִׁפּוּט
וּמִתּוֹךְ כַּוָּנָה,
וְאֶת הַיְּכֹלֶת לְהַבְחִין
כַּאֲשֶׁר אֲחֵרִים נֶאֱבָקִים.
And, may the blessed Holy One grant those of us
who aren’t experiencing mental health issues
the strength,
resilience
and capacity
to listen without judgment
and with intention,
and the ability to notice
when others are struggling.
יְהִי רְצוֹנְךָ
שֶׁנִּצּוֹר קְהִלּוֹת
שֶׁמְּקַבְּלוֹת,
מֵרוֹמְמוֹת
וְתוֹמְכוֹת
בְּאֵלֶּה שֶׁבֵּינֵינוּ הַנֶּאֱבָקִים.
May [it be your will
that] we create communities
that accept,
uplift,
and support
those among us who are struggling.
הַשְׁתָּא בַּעֲגָלָא
וּבִזְמַן קָרִיב.
וְנֹאמַר אָמֵן.
Now, speedily,
and in a time soon to come.
Amen.
