We thank God in both the silent daily devotion and the grace after the meals for the miracles He has wrought. Even simple historical events are seen properly as hidden miracles. All the more when the Temple candelabra burned for 8 days on one day's worth of pure oil.

The Words

Translation


Al hanisim v'al hapurkan
V'al hag'vurot v'al hat'shu'ot
V'al hamilchamot she'asita lavoteinu
Bayamim hahem bazman hazeh


(Thank you) for the miracles, the salvation
The heroism and the acts of rescue
And for the wars You fought for our ancestors
Back in those years, in these days!
