Shabbat Conclusion Worship Services: Hamavdil and Shavua Tov - Wishes for a Good Week Ahead

a Havdallah candle

Sung at the conclusion of the Havdallah service, which marks the separation between the end of Shabbat and the new week.

Sip the wine or juice and sing:

Hamavdil ben koshesh l'chol, chatoteinu hu yimchol,
zareinu v'chaspeinu yarbeh kachol, v'chakochavim balailah.

May the One who distinguished the holy from the profane forgive us when we err in our ways. May our children and prosperity increase like the sands on the shore and the stars in the night.

Shavuah Tov!

A good week, a week of peace, may gladness reign and joy increase.
