This fine art print is personalized with the baby girl or boy's full Hebrew name and Hebrew birthdate, so the blessing also serves as a certificate of this important information. The text draws from the traditional blessings given to a newborn baby at the time of naming. This version, edited by Rabbi Dr Michael Shire and used with his blessing, can be found in his book "To Life! L'Chaim! Prayers and Blessings for the Jewish Home".
Translation of the Hebrew:
May the One who blessed our ancestors Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah, bless this child, whose name in the House of Israel shall be ... son/daughter of ... and .... May God guard him/her from all evil, grant him/her a long life and establish the work of his/her hands. May his/her father and mother rejoice in their child and help him/her to grow and to learn to become a blessing to his/her family, the family of Israel and all the families of the earth.
