A Time to Embrace — Havdalah Texts | The Mordecai M. Kaplan Center for Jewish Peoplehood

    The Mordecai M. Kaplan Center for Jewish Peoplehood

    Mordecai M. Kaplan (1881-1983) was one of the most influential Jewish thinkers of the 20th century. We believe that his thought may be even more important in the 21st century.

    A Time to Embrace — Havdalah Texts

    (From ReformJudaism.org, with gratitude to the Union for Reform Judaism.)


    INTRODUCTORY PASSAGE TO THE HAVDALAH SERVICE: HINEI EL

    As Shabbat ends, the Havdalah candle is lit. It is customary to raise the cup of wine or grape juice high when the last sentence is recited and then proceed to the blessings.
    ,הִנֵּה אֵל יְשׁוּעָתִי, אֶבְטַח וְלֹא אֶפְחָד
    .כִּי עָזִּי וְזִמְרָת יָהּ יְיָ, וַיְהִי לִי לִישׁוּעָה
    .וּשְׁאַבְתֶּם מַֽיִם בְּשָׂשׂוֹן, מִמַּעַיְנֵי הַיְשׁוּעָה
    .לַייָ הַיְשׁוּעָה, עַל עַמְּךָ בִרְכָתֶֽךָ סֶּֽלָה
    .יְיָ צְבָאוֹת עִמָּֽנוּ, מִשְׂגָּב לָנוּ אֱלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב סֶֽלָה
    .יְיָ צְבָאוֹת, אַשְרֵי אָדָם בֹּטֵֽחַ בָּךְ
    .יְיָ הוֹשִֽׁיעָה, הַמֶּֽלֶךְ יַעֲנֵֽנוּ בְיוֹם קָרְאֵֽנוּ
    ,לַיְּהוּדִים הָיְתָה אוֹרָה וְשִׂמְחָה וְשָׂשׂוֹן וִיקָר.
    .כֵּן תִּהְיֶה לָּֽנוּ
    .כּוֹס יְשׁוּעוֹת אֶשָּׂא, וּבְשֵׁם יְיָ אֶקְרָא

    Hinei El y’shuati, evtach v’lo efchad.
    Ki ozi v’zimrat Yah Adonai vay’hi li lishuah.
    Ush’avtem mayim b’sason mimaay’nei hay’shuah.
    L’Adonai hay’shuah, al am’cha virchatecha, selah.
    Adonai tz’vaot imanu, misgav lanu, Elohei Yaakov, selah.
    Adonai tz’vaot, ashrei adam botei-ach bach!
    Adonai hoshiah; haMelech yaaneinu v’yom kor’einu.
    LaY’hudim hay’tah orah v’simchah v’sason vikar;
    kein tih’yeh lanu.
    Kos y’shuot esa, uv’shem Adonai ekra.

    Behold, the God who gives me triumph! I am confident, unafraid; for Adonai is my strength and might, and has been my deliverance. Joyfully shall you draw water from the fountains of triumph, deliverance is Adonai’s; Your blessing be upon

    Your people! Selah. Adonai Tz’vaot is with us; the God of Jacob is our haven. Selah.
    Adonai Tz’vaot. happy is the one who trusts in You. O Adonai, grant victory!
    May the Sovereign answer us when we call. The Jews enjoyed light and gladness, happiness and honor.
    So may it be for us.
    I raise the cup of deliverance and invoke the name of Adonai.
