Source (Hebrew) Translation (English)

”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.

This prayer, for those administering vaccinations, was offered by the Masorti Movement in Israel and the Knesset haRabanim b’Yisrael. It was shared on 27 December 2020 via the Open Siddur Project Discussion group on Facebook. The English translation was made by Shoshana Michael Zucker with editing by Aharon Varady.
