למחסן/ת
Prayer for those Administering Vaccinations

”אוֹדֶה ה׳ בְּכָל־לֵבָב,
בְּסוֹד יְשָׁרִים וְעֵדָה.
גְּדֹלִים מַעֲשֵׂי ה׳
דְּרוּשִׁים לְכָל־חֶפְצֵיהֶם“. (תהלים קיא:א-ב)
“I praise YHVH with all my heart
in the assembled congregation of the upright.
The works of YHVH are great,
within reach of all who desire them.” (Psalms 111:1-2)

הָאֵל הָעוֹנֶה בְּעֵת צָרָה וּמוֹשִׁיעַ,
הָרֹפֵא לִשְׁבוּרֵי לֵב וּמְחַבֵּשׁ לְעַצְּבוֹתָם (תהלים קמז:ג),
שֶׁחָלַק מֵחָכְמָתוֹ לְבָשָׂר וָדָם
וְנָתָן בָּנוּ בִּינָה, מַדָּע וְהַשְׂכֵּל
לִיצִירַת חִסּוּן זֶה.
El who answers in times of distress and saves,
“Healer of broken hearts who binds their wounds” (Psalm 147:3),
Who shares divine wisdom with flesh and blood
and has given us understanding, science and discernment
to create this vaccine:

יְהִי רָצוֹן מִלְּפָנֶיךָ,
שֶׁבְּכֹחַ מַעֲשַׂי
אֶזְכֶּה לְרַפֵּא וּלְהַצִּיל נֶפֶשׁ כׇּל חָי,
וִיקֻיַּם בִּי
”כָל הַמְקַיֵּם נֶפֶשׁ אַחַת…
כְּאִלּוּ קִיֵּם עוֹלָם מָלֵא“. (משנה סנהדרין ד:ה)
כַּכָּתוּב: ”הִנְנִי מַעֲלֶה־לָּהּ אֲרֻכָה וּמַרְפֵּא
וּרְפָאתִים“ (ירמיה לג:ו חלק)
May it be your will
that through the power of this act
I will merit healing and saving lives of all the living,
and be able to fulfill the teaching,
“whoever saves a single life…
saves an entire world” (Mishnah Sanhedrin 4:5)
as it is written “I am going to bring her healing and cure,
and I will cure them” (Jeremiah 33:6).

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה,
רוֹפֵא כׇל בָּשָׂר
וּמַפְלִיא לַעֲשׂוֹת.
Blessed are you,
who brings healing to all flesh
and makes wondrous works.

Prayer for those Being Vaccinated

הָאֵל הָעוֹנֶה בְּעֵת צָרָה וּמוֹשִׁיעַ,
הָרֹפֵא לִשְׁבוּרֵי לֵב
וּמְחַבֵּשׁ לְעַצְּבוֹתָם (תהלים קמז:ג),
שֶׁחָלַק מֵחָכְמָתוֹ לְבָשָׂר וָדָם
אֲשֶׁר הֵבִיאוּ לִיצִירַת חִסּוּן זֶה.
El who answers in times of distress and saves,
“Healer of broken hearts
who binds their wounds” (Psalm 147:3),
who shares divine wisdom with flesh and blood
that has resulted in the creation of this vaccine:

יְהִי רָצוֹן מִלְּפָנֶיךָ,
שֶׁבְּכֹחַ מַעֲשֵׂי אֱנוֹשׁ
בְּעֶזְרַת הַחוֹנֵן לְאָדָם דַּעַת
וּמְלַמֵּד לֶאֱנוֹשׁ בִּינָה, מַדָּע וְהַשְׂכֵּל
אֶזְכֶּה לִבְרִיאוּת וְחֹסֶן
וִיקֻיַּם בָּנוּ הַכָּתוּב
”וַהֲסִרֹתִי מַחֲלָה מִקִּרְבֶּךָ“ (שמות כג:כה)
”כִּי אֲנִי ה׳ רֹפְאֶךָ“ (שמות טו:כו).
”יוֹדוּ לַה׳ חַסְדּוֹ
וְנִפְלְאוֹתָיו לִבְנֵי אָדָם“. (תהלים קז:ח)
May it be your will
that through the power of this human effort
aided by God who graciously grants humans knowledge
and teaches mortals understanding, science and discernment
that I merit health and resilience
so that these verses may be fulfilled for us:
“I have removed illness from your midst” (Exodus 23:25)
“for I, YHVH, are your healer” (Exodus 15:26).
“Let them praise YHVH for thon’s kindness
and wondrous deeds for humanity” (Psalms 107:8).

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה,
רוֹפֵא כׇל בָּשָׂר
וּמַפְלִיא לַעֲשׂוֹת.
Blessed are you
who brings healing to all flesh
and makes wondrous works.
