Short Vidui by Rabbi Rachel Barenblat
I acknowledge before the Source of All
that life and death are not in my hands.
Just as my soul chose to enter this world in life,
so my soul chooses to depart this world in death.
May my life be a healing memory for those who knew me.
May my loved ones think well of me,
and may my memory bring them joy.
From all those I may have hurt, I ask forgiveness.
To all who have hurt me, I grant forgiveness.
As a wave returns to the ocean,
so I return to the Source from which I came.
שְׁמַע, יִשְׂרָאֵל, יהוה אֱלֹהֵינוּ, יהוה אֶחָד
Sh’ma, Yisra·eil: יהוה Eloheinu, יהוה Echad!
Hear, O Israel: יהוה is our God; יהוה is One.
