Shabbat - Kiddush Featured

 Sing the "Sholom Aleichem," greeting and then bidding farewell to these angels who have accompanied you all Friday night and are now taking leave.

Sholom aleichem malachay ha-shorais, malachay el-yon, mi-melech malachay ham'lochim, hakodosh baruch hu. (repeat 3 times)

Bo-achem l'sholom, malachay hashalom, malachay el-yon, mi-melech malachay ham'lochim, hakodosh baruch hu. (repeat 3 times)

Burchuni l'sholom, malachay hashalom, malachay el-yon, mi-melech malachay ham'lochim, hakodosh baruch hu. (repeat 3 times)

Tzays'chem l'sholom, malachay hashalom, malachay el-yon, mi-melech malachay ham'lochim, hakodosh baruch hu. (repeat 3 times)

Translation:

Peace unto you, ministering angels, messengers of the Most High, the supreme King of kings, the Holy One, blessed be He. (chant three times)

May your coming be in peace, angels of peace, messengers of the Most High, the supreme King of kings, the Holy One, blessed be He. (chant three times)

Bless me with peace, angels of peace, messengers of the Most High, the supreme King of kings, the Holy One, blessed be He. (chant three times)

May your departure be in peace, angels of peace, messengers of the Most High, the supreme King of kings, the Holy One, blessed be He. (chant three times)


Fill the kiddush cup--an ornate silver import, or a plain glass, anything works, as long as it's a permanent vessel, no plastic please--so that it brims over with wine.

Stand up, hold the cup in your right hand, and recite the blessing (in your best alto, in one of the following versions: Hebrew, transliteration, or English translation ).

Yom ha-shishi, Va-yechulu ha-shamayim ve-ha’aretz ve-chol tzeva’am.

Va-yechal Elohim ba-yom ha-shevi’i melachto asher asah, va-yishbot ba-yom ha-shevi’i mi-kol melachto asher asah.

Va-yevarech Elohim et yom ha-shevi’i va-yekadeish oto, ki vo shavat mi-kol melachto asher bara Elohim la’asot.

Savri maranan:

Baruch ata Hashem, Elokeinu melech ha-olam,borei peri ha-gafen. (Those present respond, “Amen.”)

Baruch atah Hashem, Eloheinu melech ha-olam, asher kideshanu be-mitzvotav ve-ratzah banu, ve-Shabbat kodesho be-ahava uve-ratzon hinchilanu, zikaron le-ma’aseh vereishit, techilah le-mikra’ei kodesh, zeicher litziat mitzrayim.

Ki vanu vecharta ve-otanu kidashta mi-kol ha-amim, ve-Shabbat kodshecha be-ahavah uve-ratzon hinchaltanu.

Baruch ata Hashem, mekadeish ha-Shabbat. (“Amen”)

Translation:

The sixth day. And the heavens and the earth and all their complements were finished. And G-d finished by the Seventh Day His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. And G-d blessed the seventh day and made it holy, for on it He rested from all His work, which G-d had created to do.

Attention Gentlemen! Blessed are You, Lord our G-d, King of the world, who creates the fruit of vine.

Blessed are You, Lord our G-d, king of the world, who made us holy with His commandments and favored us, and gave us His holy Shabbat, in love and favor, to be our heritage, as a reminder of the Creation. It is the first of the holy festivals, commemorating the exodus from Egypt. For You have choesen us and sanctified us from among all the nations, and with love and goodwill given us Your holy Shabbat as a heritage. Blessed are You, Lord, who sanctifies Shabbat.
