2. The separate cup
Beneath the Marriage canopy symbolizing the couple's new home. you drank from a single cup, representing the shared cup of your life together. I pour wine now from that single cup into two glasses. Please join with me in blessing this wine, which you will sip each from your own cup, as you drink from your own cup of life henceforth.
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה אֲדֹנָי אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם בּוֹרֵא פְּרִי הַגָפֶן
Barukh atah Adonai, eloheynu melekh ha’olam, borey pri hagafen.
A Fountain of Blessing are You, Adonai our God, sovereign of all space and time, creator of the fruit of the vine.
3. Prayer of forgiveness
The divorcing couple speaks these words, either in turn or simultaneously:
Eternal Friend, witness that I forgive [Name]
for any injuries sustained over the course of our relationship
whether by accident or willfully, carelessly or purposely
with words, deeds, thought, or attitudes
now or in previous incarnations.
May s/he not experience harm because of me.
May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart
be acceptable to You, Who protects and frees me.
