It is customary to bless the newborn with the traditional blessing with which the Kohanim [priests] generally bless the congregation. A Kohen may recite this blessing, as may the parents, grandparents, or anyone else. The original form of this blessing is generally recited (as it appears in Numbers 6:24), preferably the expanded version that follows. Some people entirely preserve the verse in its original form, while others change it to the feminine form.
יְשִׂימֵךְ אֱלֹהִים כְּשָׂרָה רִבְקָה רָחֵל וְלֵאָה אֲשֶׁר בָּנוּ אֶת בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל, יְבָרֶכְךָ יְבָרְכֵךְ אֲדֹנָי וְיִשְׁמְרֶךָ וְיִשְׁמְרֵךְ יָאֵר אֲדָנַי אֲדֹנָי פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ אֵלָיִךְ וִיחֻנֶךָּ וִיחֻנֵּךְ יִשָּׂא אֲדֹנָי פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ אֵלָיִךְ וְיָשֵׂם לְךָ לֵךְ שָׁלוֹם
וִיהִי רָצוֹן מִלִּפְנֵי אָבִינוּ שֶׁבַּשָּׁמַיִם שֶׁיִּתֵּן בְּלִבֵּךְ אַהֲבָתוֹ וְיִרְאָתוֹ וְתִהְיֶה יִרְאַת הַשֵּׁם עַל פָּנַיִךְ כָּל יָמַיִךְ שֶׁלֹּא תֶחֱטָאִיֶ וּתְהִיֶ חֶשְׁקֵךְ בַּתּוֹרָה וּבְמִצְווֹת עֵינֵיִךְ לְנוֹכָח יַבִּיטוּ פִּיךְ יְדַבֵּר חֲכְמוֹת וְלִבֵּךְ יֶהְגֶה אֵימּוֹת יָדַיִךְ יַעֲסְקוּ בְּמִצְווֹת, רַגְלַיִךְ יָרוּצוּ לַעֲשׂוֹת רְצוֹן אָבִיךְ שֶׁבַּשׁ יָמִים, וִיהִי מְקוֹרֵךְ בָּרוּךְ
