Prayers for B’Nai Mitzvah Students — Blessing Before Torah Reading

Read by Michael Seidel

Bless Adonai, who is blessed. Blessed is Adonai, who is blessed now and forever.
Blessed are You, Adonai our G-d, Source of all in the universe, who has chosen us from among the peoples, and given us the Torah. Blessed are You, Adonai, who gives the Torah.
