Talmud Berakhot 17a

By Lawrence Kushner (translator)
three generations of women passing a torah

May you live to see your world fulfilled,
May your destiny be for worlds still to come,
And may you trust in generations past and yet
   to be.
May your heart be filled with intuition
and your words be filled with insight.
May songs of praise ever be upon your tongue
and your vision be on a straight path before you.
May your eyes shine with the light of holy words
and your face reflect the brightness of the heavens.
May your lips speak wisdom
and your fulfillment be in righteousness
even as you ever yearn to hear the words
of the Holy Ancient One of Old.
