May the One who blessed our ancestors
Bless all those who put themselves at risk to care for the sick
Physicians and nurses and orderlies
Technicians and home health aides
EMTs and pharmacists
And bless especially / an individual or other categories of health workers/
Who navigate the unfolding dangers of the world each day,
To tend to those they have sworn to help.
(This includes you.)
Bless them in their coming home and bless them in their going out.
Ease their fear. Sustain them.
Source of all breath, healer of all beings,
Protect them and restore their hope.
Strengthen them, that they may bring strength;
Keep them in health, that they may bring healing.
Help them know again a time when they can breathe without fear.
Bless the sacred work of their hands.
May this plague pass from among us, speedily and in our days.
—Rabbi Ayelet S. Cohen, March 2020
The Transcendent initiated communication from the Holy of Holies
to the guide within each of us
And Beingness spoke from above
from a transitory place of God’s presence.
In words the communication may be translated as follows:
Speak with all the parts of yourself
and speak again with them:
A human being
when wishing to draw close to the Divine
it is from you yourself
that a drawing closer to God must come;
draw out nearness from your animal soul
whether your nature is bullish
that is the source of your drawing close to God.
