The congregation forms a circle large enough to include everyone. Each person either places their hand on the head of the person to their right or their right palm on the back of the left hand of the person to the right.
May God prosper you.
May your days be long and your nights serene.
May your friendships honor you, and your family love you.
May you eat at your table, and
may you be gathered into to God's embrace
with a smile.
