Our communities include people who are not in long-term partnered relationships, whether by choice or circumstance. If this is you, take a moment to celebrate yourself this Shabbat with this blessing for the solo person. 

This Shabbat, amidst the growing twilight, 

I affirm myself in my full dignity, 

In my truth, 

And in my lived experience
 

I celebrate my resilience

And my wholeness, 

My fortitude and my strength
 

And I name and bless myself 

As a sovereign being

Under a canopy of stars

My aliveness is my own
