HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHELOMIT!!!!! I Hope You Have as Wonderful a Day as You Deserve!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHELOMIT! I’m out of town this weekend, so I can’t do a watchalong in your honor, but that’s just a raincheck! You get to pick for the next watchalong.

מִי שֶׁבֵּרַךְ אֲבוֹתֵֽינוּ
אַבְרָהָם יִצְחָק וְיַעֲקֹב
הוּא יְבָרֵךְ אֶת (Shelomit)
לִתְקוּפַת יוֹם הֻלַּדְתּוֹ/הֻלַּדְתָּהּ.
May the One who blessed our fathers,
Avraham, Yitsḥaq, and Ya’aqov,
bless (Shelomit)
on the (?) anniversary of their birthday.
הָאֱלֹהִים הָרוֹעֶה אוֹתוֹ מֵעוֹדוֹ/אוֹתָהּ מֵעוֹדָהּ
עַד הַיּוֹם הַזֶּה
May Elohim who enabled them
to live to this day
continue their mercies
and grant them many more years
of health and happiness.
וְיוֹסִיף לוֹ/לָהּ שְׁנוֹת חַיִּים וּבְרָכָה
בְּטוֹב וּבִנְעִימוֹת בְּרָב־עֹז וְשָׁלוֹם
וְנָֽסוּ יָגוֹן וַאֲנָחָה.
May [Elohim] keep them free
from all anxieties
and bodily ills.
יְחַדֵּֽהוּ/יְחַדֶּֽהָ בְאֽשֶׁר
וּבְשִׂמְחַת לֵבָב
שֶׁל־כׇּל־אֲהוּבֵי נַפְשׁוֹ/נַפְשָׁהּ
May [Elohim] cause them to rejoice
in the happiness
of all who are dear to them.
כׇּל־מִשְׁאֲלוֹת לִבּוֹ/לִבָּהּ
וּתְפִלּוֹתָיו/וּתְפִלּוֹתֶֽיהָ לְטוֹבָה.
May [Elohim] enable them
to behold the fulfilment
of all their worthy hopes
and prayers.
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה
יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ
מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם
לַזְּמָן הַזֶּה:
Blessed be you
YHVH our elo’ah
King of the universe
who has kept us in life,
sustained us
and brought us
to this happy occasion.

Now, for birthdays, we light candles, and Rekha says:

We invite family

And we DANCE!
