Havdalah is a beautiful ceremony that concludes Shabbat. The Havdalah (“Separation”) ceremony, includes a series of blessings to define the distinctions that God set in creation between the holy and the ordinary, between light and darkness, between Shabbat and the six days of work, and between Israel and the nations.
Below are the blessings courtesy of My Jewish Learning:
Hinei El yeshu’ati, evtach v’-lo efchad. Ki ozi ve-zimrat Yah Adonai, vayhi li liyshu’a. Ush’avtem mayim b’sason mi-ma’y'nei ha-yshu’a. L’Adonai ha-y’shu’a, al amkha virkhatekha selah. Adonai tz’vaot imanu, misgav lanu Elohei Ya’akov selah. Adonai tz’vaot ashrei adam boteakh bach. Adonai hosheea, ha-Melech ya’aneinu b’yom kor’einu. La-Yhudim hayta orah ve-simcha ve-sason viykar, ken tihyeh lanu. Kos yeshu’ot esa uvshem Adonai ekra.
Behold, God is my unfailing help; I will trust in God and will not be afraid. God is strength and song, my Deliverer. With joy shall you draw water out of the wells of salvation. God alone is our help; may God bless His people. God of the universe is with us; the God of Jacob is our protection. There was light and joy; gladness and honor for the Jewish people. So may we be blessed. I will lift the cup of salvation and call upon God’s Name.

Barukh ata Adonai, Eloheinu Melekh ha-olam, borei peri ha-gafen.

Blessing over the spices:

Blessing over the flames of the Havdalah candle:
Barukh ata Adonai, Eloheinu Melekh ha-olam, borei m’orei ha-eish.
Blessed are You, Adonai our God, Ruler of the universe, Creator of the fire’s light.
Barukh ata Adonai, Eloheinu Melekh ha-olam, ha-mavdil bein kodesh l’chol, bein or-le’choshekh, bein Yisrael la-amim, bein yom ha-shevi’i l’sheshet y’mai ha-ma’aseh. Barukh ata Adonai, ha-mavdil bein kodesh l’chol.
Blessed are You, Eternal our God, Ruler of the universe, Who distinguishes between the sacred and the profane, between light and darkness, between Israel and other people of the world, between the seventh day and the six days of the week. Blessed are You, Who distinguishes between the sacred and the profane.
In a nutshell we are working on a full Kabbalat Shabbat project (music/book) with original music, artwork, English translation and selective transliteration, and a few contemplative B”CH passages with original music to get you in the Kabbalat Shabbat mood. We are really excited about this project and really looking forward to sharing it. We are nailing down a few key things and then soon we will start a Kickstarter campaign where you can be apart of this project in a very big way. Stay tuned there is much more to come!
