Hebrew Text

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה, יְיָ אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ,
מֶֽלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, בּוֹרֵא פְּרִי הַגָּֽפֶן.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה, יְיָ אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ,
מֶֽלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, אֲשֶׁר בָּֽחַר בָּֽנוּ

מִכׇּל עָם וְרוֹמְמָֽנוּ מִכׇּל לָשׁוֹן,
וְקִדְּשָֽׁנוּ בְּמִצְוֺתָיו.

וַתִּֽתֶּן לָֽנוּ, יְיָ אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ, בְּאַהֲבָה
מוֹעֲדִים לְשִׂמְחָה,
חַגִּים וּזְמַנִּים לְשָׂשׂוֹן, אֶת יוֹם
חַג הַמַּצּוֹת הַזֶּה,

זְמַן חֵרוּתֵֽנוּ,
מִקְרָא קֹֽדֶשׁ, זֵֽכֶר לִיצִיאַת מִצְרָֽיִם.
כִּי בָֽנוּ בָחַֽרְתָּ וְאוֹתָֽנוּ קִדַּֽשְׁתָּ
מִכׇּל הָעַמִּים
וּמוֹעֲדֵי קׇדְשְׁךָ
בְּשִׂמְחָה וּבְשָׂשׂוֹן הִנְחַלְתָּֽנוּ.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה, יְיָ, מְקַדֵּשׁ
יִשְׂרָאֵל וְהַזְּמַנִּים.

Translation

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

Blessed are You, Our God, Sovereign of the universe, who has chosen us from among the peoples, exalting us by hallowing us with mitzvot. In Your love, Adonai our God, You have given us feasts of gladness, and seasons of joy; this Festival of Pesach, season of our freedom, a sacred occasion, a remembrance of the Exodus from Egypt. For You have chosen us from all peoples and consecrated us to Your service, and given us the Festivals, a time of gladness and joy.

Blessed are You, Adonai, who sanctifies Israel and the Festivals.

Blessed are You, Adonai Our God, Sovereign of the universe. 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.
