Blessing for Wearing a Mask and Other Obligations

Breath of Life
We welcome our obligations to the community
To do our best
To protect them
By keeping our distance and
By wearing our masks.
It is an honor to be able to be of such service
With so little effort. 

And, Ruakh HaOlam,
We welcome our obligations to ourselves
To do our best
To stay healthy 
By washing our hands and
By getting our flu shots. 
It is a relief to be able to help ourselves
With so little effort. 
We give thanks for these holy obligations.  
We are blessed by them.
