Hebrew English
אֱלֹהֵינוּ וֵאלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתֵינוּ (וְאִמוֹתֵינוּ),
חַדֵּשׁ אֶת הַיְּעָרוֹת
בְּאֶרֶץ יִשְׂרָאֵל
וּבְכָל הָעוֹלָם.
Our God and God of our ancestors,
renew the forests
in the Land of Israel
and all the world.
וּשְׁמֹר אֶת הַעֵצִים בַּהֶם,
מְחַדְּשֵׁי הָאֲוִיר,
וְשׁוֹמְרֵי הַחַיִּים.
And guard the trees within them,
renewers of the air
and guardians of life.
וְהָאֵר אֶת לֵב הָאִישׁ
אֲשֶׁר חוֹתֵךְ אוֹתָם בָּאָרֶץ הַזֹּאת
וּבְכָל אָרְצוֹת בָּעוֹלָם,
כַּכָּתּוּב: ”לֹא־תַשְׁחִ֤ית אֶת־עֵצָהּ֙ לִנְדֹּ֤חַ עָלָיו֙ גַּרְזֶ֔ן“ (דברים כ:יט),
And enlighten the mind
of those who would cut them down in this land
and in all the lands of the world,
as it is written, “You shall not cut down its trees by wielding against them an axe.”[1] Deuteronomy 20:19 
וְגַם בְּדִּבְרֵי שְׁלֹמֹה הַמֶּלֶךְ כָּתּוּב:
”עֵץ־חַיִּ֣ים הִ֭יא לַמַּֽחֲזִיקִ֣ים בָּ֑הּ
וְֽתֹמְכֶ֥יהָ מְאֻשָּֽׁר“ (משלי ג:יח).
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה הַמְּחַדֵּשׁ הַעֵצִים׃
And also, in the words of King Solomon it is written,
“A tree of life it is to those who hold fast to it,
and all its supporters are content.”[2] Proverbs 3:18 
Blessed are you, the renewer of the trees.
