Opening Paragraph for Shabbat and Festivals

Shir Hama'alot: For Shabbat and Festivals שיר המעלות

A song of ascent:
When God restores the prosperity of Zion, we will feel like dreamers. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with exultation: then said they among the nations, The Lord has done great things for them. The Lord has done great things for us: therefore we rejoiced.
Return our exiles, God, as You return streams to the south, and let those who sow in tears reap in joyful song. Those who go out weeping, bearing the burden of seeds, shall return joyfully with the harvested grain.

שִׁיר הַמַּעֲלוֹת, בְּשׁוּב יְיָ אֶת שִׁיבַת צִיּוֹן, הָיִינוּ כְּחֹלְמִים. אָז יִמָּלֵא שְׂחוֹק פִּֽינוּ וּלְשׁוֹנֵנוּ רִנָּה, אָז יֹאמְרוּ בַגּוֹיִם, הִגְדִּיל יְיָ לַעֲשׂוֹת עִם אֵֽלֶּה. הִגְדִּיל יְיָ לַעֲשׂוֹת עִמָּנוּ, הָיִֽינוּ שְׂמֵחִים. שׁוּבָה יְיָ אֶת שְׁבִיתֵנוּ, כַּאֲפִיקִים בַּנֶּגֶב. הַזֹּרְעִים בְּדִמְעָה, בְּרִנָּה יִקְצֽרוּ. הָלוֹךְ יֵלֵךְ וּבָכֹה נֹשֵׂא מֶשֶׁךְ הַזָּרַע, בֹּא יָבֹא בְרִנָּה נֹשֵׂא אֲלֻמֹּתָיו.

Zimun: Invitation to Say Birchat Hamazon

Rabotai Nevarech רבותי נברך

When a group of three or more have eaten together, it is customary for one to invite the others to join in the blessing after the meal. When a minyan is present, include the words in parentheses.

Friends, Let us thank God. Blessed is the name of God now and forever. With your permission, let us thank God whose food we have eaten. Blessed is God whose food we have eaten and through whose goodness we live. Blessed is God and Blessed is God’s name.

Leader who says Grace starts with this
רַבּוֹתַי נְבָרֵךְ.

The others respond
יְהִי שֵׁם יְיָ מְבֹרָךְ מֵעַתָּה וְעַד עוֹלָם.

The leader continues with this
יְהִי שֵׁם יְיָ מְבֹרָךְ מֵעַתָּה וְעַד עוֹלָם. בִּרְשׁוּת רַבּוֹתַי,
נְבָרֵךְ שֶׁאָכַֽלְנוּ מִשֶּׁלּוֹ.

The others respond
בָּרוּךְ (אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ) שֶׁאָכַלְנוּ מִשֶּׁלּוֹ וּבְטוּבוֹ חָיִֽינוּ.

He who says Grace replies
בָּרוּךְ (אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ) שֶׁאָכַֽלְנוּ מִשֶּׁלּוֹ וּבְטוּבוֹ חָיִינוּ.
בָּרוּךְ הוּא וּבָרוּךְ שְׁמוֹ.

Birkat HaMazon ברכת המזון

U'vnei Yerushalyim ובנה ירושלים

May God rebuild Jerusalem, the holy city, speedily in our lifetime. Blessed is Adonai, who restores Jerusalem with mercy. Amen

וּבְנֵה יְרוּשָׁלַיִם עִיר הַקּֽדֶשׁ בִּמְהֵרָה בְיָמֵינוּ. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, בּוֹנֵה בְרַחֲמָיו יְרוּשָׁלָיִם. אָמֵן.

Magdil מגדל

God grants deliverance (on Shabbat and Rosh Chodesh: God is a tower of deliverance) to God.s chosen sovereign, and shows kindness to God.s anointed one, to David, and his descendents forever.

May the One who makes peace in the heavens let peace descend on all us and all of Israel, and let us say: Amen.

מִגְדּוֹל
יְשׁוּעוֹת מַלְכּוֹ, וְעֽשֶׂה חֶֽסֶד לִמְשִׁיחוֹ לְדָוִד וּלְזַרְעוֹ עַד עוֹלָם.

עֹשֶׂה שָׁלוֹם בִּמְרוֹמָיו, הוּא יַעֲשֶׂה שָׁלוֹם עָלֵינוּ וְעַל כָּל יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְאִמְרוּ אָמֵן.

Adonai Oz l'Amo Yitain יי עז לעמו יתן

May God give strength to our people; may God bless our people with peace.

יְיָ עֹז לְעַמּוֹ יִתֵּן, יְיָ יְבָרֵךְ אֶת עַמּוֹ בַשָּׁלוֹם. אמן.
