Mi shebeirach avoteinu, Avraham, Yitzchak v’Ya’akov, v’imoteinu, Sara, Rivka, Rachel, v’Leah, hu y’vareich et kol avoteinu v’chol sabeinu.
May the One who blessed our ancestors, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, Leah and Rachel, bless all of our fathers and grandfathers. May they know the joy of children who want to play with them, children who offer hugs for no particular reason, children who come to their fathers and grandfathers for compassion and help when life overwhelms them.
May their experiences as fathers and grandfathers fill their hearts with a deep sense of fulfillment and meaning. May their children and grandchildren recognize the ways that they offer guidance, instruction, commitment, forgiveness, love and acceptance.
May all our fathers and grandfathers be a blessing. And we say together, Amein.
