When the seder falls on a Saturday evening, a special, abbreviated version of Havdalah is recited before the Shehecheyanu is recited.

First, the Kiddush is recited.

Hebrew Text of Passover Kiddush for the Seder

Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech haolam, borei pr'ri hagafen.

Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech haolam, asher bachar banu mikol am v'rom'manu mikol lashon v'kid'shanu b'mitzvotav. Vatiten lanu Adonai Eloheinu b'ahavah moadim l'simchah chagim uz'manim l'sason et yom chag hamatzot hazeh z'man cheiruteinu mikra kodesh zeicher litziat Mitzrayim. Ki vanu vacharta v'otanu kidashta mikol haamim umoadei kodsh'cha b'simchah uv'sason hinchaltanu.

Baruch atah Adonai, m'kadeish Yisrael v'hazmanim.

Blessed are You, Our God, Ruler of the world, Creator of the fruit of the vine.

Bessed are You, Our God, Ruler of the world, You have chosen us from all peoples, exalting us and sanctifying us with mitzvot. In Your love, Our God, You have given us feasts of gladness and seasons of joy; this festival of matzot, season of our freedom, a holy commemoration, a reminder of the Exodus from Egypt. God, You have chosen us from all peoples, consecrating us to your service, giving us the Festivals, a time of gladness and joy.

Blessed are You, who sanctifies our people Israel, and the Festivals.

Special Havdalah

When the seder falls on a Saturday evening, we continue with this special version of Havdalah before the Shehecheyanu is recited

Baruch Atah Adonai Eloheinu Melech ha-olam borei m'orei ha-eish.

Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech haolam, hamavdil bein kodesh l'chol, bein or l'choshech, bein Yisrael laamim, bein yom hash'vi-i l'sheishet y'mei hamaaseh. Bein k'dushat Shabbat lik'dushat yom tov hivdalta. V'et yom hash'vi-i misheishet y'mei hamaaseh kidashta. Hivdalta v'kidashta et amcha Yisrael bik'dushatecha. Baruch atah Adonai, hamavdil bein kodesh l'kodesh.

Blessed are You, Our God, Ruler of the world, Creator of the fire's light.

Blessed are You, Our God, Ruler of the world, You distinguish between holiness and dailiness, between light and darkness, between Israel and the nations, between the seventh day and the six days of creation, between the holiness of the Sabbath and the holiness of the Festival Days. You sanctify the seventh day from the six days of Creation. You distinguish and make holy your people Israel. Blessed are You, Our God, who distinguishes between holiness and holiness.

Shehecheyanu

We recite the Shehecheyanu, thanking God for allowing us to reach this day.

Baruch atah, Adonai Eloheinu, Melech haolam, shehecheyanu v’kiy’manu v’higianu laz’man hazeh.

Praise to You, Adonai our God, Sovereign of the universe, for giving us life, for sustaining us, and for enabling us to reach this season.
