Upon setting forth on a journey
Hebrew Text

יְהִי רָצוֹן מִלְּפָנֶיךָ יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ וֵאלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתֵינוּ וְאִמּוֹתֵינוּ, שֶׁתּוֹלִיכֵנוּ לְשָׁלוֹם וְתַּעַזְרֵנוּ לְהַגִיעַ לִמְחוֹז חֶפְצֵנוּ לְחַיִּים וּלְשִׂמְחָה וּלְשָׁלוֹם. וּשְׁמוֹר צֵאתֵנוּ וּבוֹאֵנוּ וְתַצִּילֵנוּ מִכָּל צָרָה וְתִשְׁלַח בְּרָכָה בְּכָל מַעֲשֵׂי יָדֵנוּ, וּמַעֲשֵׁינוּ יְכַבְּדוּ אֶת שְׁמֶךָ. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, שׁוֹמֵר עַמּוֹ יִשְׁרָאֵל לָעַד

Baruch atah, Adonai, shomeir Yisrael laad.

Translation

May it be Your will, our God and God of our ancestors,
that You lead us in peace and help us reach our destination
safely, joyfully and peacefully.
May You protect us on our leaving and on our return,
and rescue us from any harm,
and may You bless the work of our hands,
and may our deeds merit honor for You.
Praise to You, Adonai, Protector of Israel.
