Prayer for Healing from Communal Tragedy

By Kolot: The Center for Jewish Women's and Gender Studies


בְּרוּכָה אַתְּ יָהּ מְקוֹר הַחַיִּים הַתּוֹמֶכֶת בָּנוּ בְּהַבִיאֵנוּ אוֹר לְחֹשֶׁךְ מַרְפֵּא לְשֶׁבֶר וְשָׁלוֹם לְכֹל יוֹשְׁבֵי תֵּבֵל 

Blessed are you, Source of Life,
Who helps us to bring
Light where there is darkness,
Healing where there is brokenness, and
Peace to all of the earth's inhabitants.

Brukhah at Yah, M'kor Ha-hayyim,
ha-tomekhet banu b'haviyenu
Or l'hoshekh,
marpei l'shever,
v'shalom l'khol yoshvei tevel.
