Bat Mitzvah Blessing

February 17, 2011

May you live to see your world fulfilled,
May you be our link to future worlds,
and may your hope encompass all the generations to be.
May your heart conceive with understanding,
may your mouth speak wisdom
and your tongue be stirred with sounds of joy.
May your gaze be straight and sure,
your eyes be lit with Torah’s lamp,
your face aglow with heaven’s radiance,
your lips expressing words of knowledge,
and your inner self alive with righteousness.
And may you always rush in eagerness to hear
the words of One more ancient than all time.

– Talmud Berachot 17a
