Prayers for B’Nai Mitzvah Students — Friday Night Kiddush

Read by Michael Seidel

Praised are You Adonai our G-d, who rules the universe, creating the fruit of the vine. Praised are You, Adonai our G-d, who rules the universe, instilling in us the holiness of mitzvot, and cherishing us by granting us Your holy Shabbat lovingly, gladly, a reminder of Creation. It is the first among our days of sacred assembly that recall the Exodus from Egypt. Thus You have chosen us–endowing us with [opportunities for holiness]from among all peoples, granting us Your holy Shabbat lovingly and gladly. Praised are You Adonai, who maNes holy Shabbat.
