A Blessing for Emptying a Parents' Home by Sharon Davidson & Family
Master of the universe, as we enter the home of our beloved parents and grandparents,
who have left us to be closer to You,
please guide our actions to be in accordance with Jewish law and custom,
as well as in accordance with their wishes.
Help us to move through their home,
which so enriched our lives,
in a manner that is a tribute to their teachings and their values.
May we perform this sad and wrenching duty with reverence and with dignity.
May we do so with generosity to others in the family,
acknowledging their desire for some of these mementos,
and with generosity to others in the community who might benefit from these possessions.
Ken yihi ratson (May this be Thy will).
