הִנְנִי
מוּכָן וּמְזֻמָּן
לְקַיֵּם מִצְוַת
אֲכִילָה וּשְׁתִיָּה בְּיוֹם הַכִּפּוּרִים,
כְּמוֹ שֶׁכָּתַבְתָּ בְּתוֹרָתֶךָ
”וּשְׁמַרְתֶּם אֶת־חֻקֹּתַי וְאֶת־מִשְׁפָּטַי
אֲשֶׁר יַעֲשֶׂה אֹתָם הָאָדָם וָחַי בָּהֶם
אֲנִי ה׳׃“ (ויקרא יח:ה)
Here I am,
ready and able
to perform the mitsvah
of eating and drinking on Yom Kippur,
as you wrote in your Torah:
“You shall keep My laws and My rules,
by the pursuit of which a person shall live:
I am Hashem” (Leviticus 18:5).
וּבְכֹחַ אֲכִילָתִי וּשְׁתִיָּתִי
אֶעֱמֹד אֵיתָן עַל מִשְׁמַר אַרְצֵנוּ
וְעָרֵי אֱלֹהֵינוּ.
וּבִזְכוּת קִיּוּם מִצְוָה זוֹ
תַּחְתֹּם אוֹתִי
וְאֶת כׇּל עַמְּךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל
לְחַיִּים טוֹבִים וַאֲרֻכִּים
וּלְשָׁלוֹם.
אָמֵן
וְכֵן יְהִי רָצוֹן.
And with the energy of my eating and drinking,
I will stand ready on guard for our country
and the cities of our elo’ah.
An in the the merit of fulfilling this mitsvah,
may you designate for me
and all the people of Yisrael
a good and long life
for peace.
Amen,
and may it be your will.
