Shabbat Toldot

Our ancestors teach us to go down to the well

And draw from the living waters

The wisdom of the earth,

The wisdom of the ages,

The wisdom of the heart.

To go down to the well and

Draw from the waters

Guidance to be strong

Generous, loving.


May the mayim hayim—the living waters

That nourish all life

Call us present and send us forth


To protect the waters,

To honor the waters,

To learn from its fluid strength.


Our ancestors are watching, as are our children’s, children’s children.

May we dig deeply,

And rise up together

Clear, Open,


To be present to what is

And discern what is ours to do.


Shabbat Shalom  Blessings to all
