Protector and Redeemer of Israel, bless Thou the State of Israel which, marks the dawn of our deliverance. Shield it beneath the wings of Thy love; spread over it Thy canopy of peace; send Thy light and Thy truth to its leaders, officers, and counselors, and direct them with Thy good counsel.
O God, strengthen the defenders of our Holy Land; grant them salvation and crown them with victory. Establish peace in the Land, and everlasting joy for its inhabitants.
(excerpted from Ha-Siddur Ha-Shalem, Phillip Birnbaum, Hebrew Publishing Company, 1949)
