The Hebrew Translation of The Crossing Over Prayer©

Cantor Larry Kornit, Congregation B’nai Tikvah, noted that the Hebrew Translation of the Crossing Over Prayer© is based on a very similar ancient Hebrew prayer the Eyl Mole “Rachamin” which was written in the 15th century. Cantor Larry simply substituted Hebrew for “remove all guilt, judgment or prejudice.”

Many thanks to my friend Scott Robinson and to Cantor Larry for facilitating this most precious translation.

E-l malei rachamim,

אֵל מָלֵא רַחֲמִים שׁוֹכֵן בַּמְּרוֹמִים,
הַמְצֵא מְנוּחָה נְכוֹנָה עַל כַּנְפֵי הַשְּׁכִינָה,
בְּמַעֲלוֹת קְדוֹשִׁים וּטְהוֹרִים
כְּזוֹהַר הָרָקִיעַ מַזְהִירִים,
בורך טוב בן בלימע ושלמה אֶת נִשְׁמַת
שֶׁהָלַךְ לְעוֹלָמוֹ, בְּגַן עֵדֶן תְּהֵא מְנוּחָתוֹ.
[אָנָא,] בַּעַל הָרַחֲמִים יַסְתִּירֵהוּ
בְּסֵתֶר [כְּנָפֶיךָ] כְּנָפָיו לְעוֹלָמִים,
וְיִצְרֹר [וּצְרֹר] בִּצְרוֹר הַחַיִּים
אֶת נִשְׁמָתוֹ, יְיָ הוּא נַחֲלָתוֹ,
וְיָנוּחַ בְּשָׁלוֹם עַל מִשְׁכָּבוֹ, וְנֹאמַר אָמֵן׃אָמֵן׃
In Direct translation since Hebrew, written word for word, alters the meaning and the spirit of a prayer;Compassionate source of all that is,
who is present in the heavens, I humble request you to
take our loved ones under your holy, pure and glorious wings,And wrap them in the blanket of your Light,
that shines like the sky, return to the source (Heaven) now,
as we provide charity and pray every soul will use this bridge from our creator,
in the name of the soul of our loved one [Please] Compassionate one,
provide rest & peace for this soul, or any or all souls requested in GA ‘an Eden,(Heaven). May their Team of Guardian Angels guide (transition) them home“*I send love & healing to all souls, NO Matter How they Died, or their level of guilt, judgment or prejudice”*
and may you never withdraw your protective wings and take [bundle] this soul into the bond of life with your Love & Light which embraces them all.May Hashem’s Love & Light embrace this soul’s and its everlasting inheritance as a peaceful resting place, now and forever, and let us say: Amen.
