We enter into this stage of our lives consciously, aware of the tremendous responsibilities involved in bringing a new life into the world.
With this responsibility we also acknowledge the hopes and dreams that we share. Dreams for a bright future filled with joy and warmth of family, and hope that the world will become and remain a truly hospitable place – a world worth living in.
We pledge ourselves to continue working towards Lit. Repair of the world According to Jewish mysticism, the world is in a broken state. Humanity's job is to join God, as God's partners, in its repair. – making the world a more perfect place. With this in mind as we prepare to join together in conceiving a child – we give Charity. In Hebrew, the word tzedakah derives from the word for justice. Tzedakah is not seen as emanating from the kindness of one’s heart but, rather, as a communal obligation. to ___________. This money is a symbol of the actual work we must do to make this world worthy of a new presence.
At this time we wish to acknowledge to one another that should we find conception impossible, we both look favorably on the prospect of adopting and welcoming a child into this family as our own.
Let us now call down the Holy sparks of divinity to join our union in Creating a new life – sparked by the Divine.
