Yit-ga-dal ve'yit-ka-dash sh'mei ra-ba  

My aunt Rose, one of my father's sisters, may her memory be a blessing, passed away last weekend at the age of 91. She'd been healthy and vigorous most of her life and went into a rapid decline only at the beginning of this year; even so, she was alert and present right up until the end.

Holy One of Blessing, Your Presence fills creation, You are indeed the Judge.


Exalted and hallowed be God's greatness
In this world of Your creation.
May Your will be fulfilled
And Your sovereignty revealed
And the life of the whole house of Israel
Speedily and soon.
And say, Amen.

May You be blessed forever,
Even to all eternity.
May You, most Holy One, be blessed,
Praised and honored, extolled and glorified,
Adored and exalted above all else.

Blessed are You.
Beyond all blessings and hymns, praises and consolations
That may be uttered in this world,
In the days of our lifetime,
And say, Amen.

May peace abundant descend from heaven
With life for us and for all Israel,
And say, Amen.

May God, Who makes peace on high,
Bring peace to all and to all Israel,
And say, Amen.
