While this prayer was designed for immigration advocacy, it can be applied across the social justice world. Recite in Hebrew, English, or both!
.בָרוּךְ אָתָא יְיָ אֱלוֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם אָשֶר קִדְּשָׁנוּ בְּמִצְוֹתַיו וְצִיוָנוּ לְהָדְלִיק נֵר שֶׁל חַנוּקַה. נְבָרֵךְ אֶת נֵר הָצָדִיק
As the hanukkiah glows brighter each night, so may our nation become more just. May the lights of Hanukkah fill us with a commitment to pursue justice for all.
