V'ha-eir eineinu b'toratecha
v'dabek libeinu b'mitzvotecha,
v'yached l'vaveinu l'ahava ul-yira et sh'mecha v'lo nevosh v'lo nikalem v'lo nikashel l'olam vaed.
וְהָאֵר עֵינֵינוּ בְּתורָתֶךָ וְדַבֵּק לִבֵּנוּ בְּמִצְותֶיךָ וְיַחֵד לְבָבֵנוּ לְאַהֲבָה וּלְיִרְאָה אֶת שְׁמֶךָ וְלֹא נֵבושׁ וְלֹא נִכָּלֵם וְלֹא נִכָּשֵל לְעולָם וָעֶד.


Light up our eyes with your Torah, and let our hearts cling to your Mitzvot, and unite our hearts to love and revere your name, that we shall never depart from it.
