This link opens up the Hebrew, English and transliterated text of a prayer that can be read from the beginning of the Hebrew month of Kislev through the end of Hannukah. Comprised of selected verses from Isaiah 60 about the power of divine light in dark times, the tradition of reciting this prayer at the end of Kabbalat Shabbat services was introduced by Rabbi Levi Weiman-Kelman of the Reform Kol Haneshama Congregation in Jerusalem. The translation provided here (published in Siddur Livnat HaSapir L’Kabbalat Shabbat) was adapted from the one made by Shaul Vardi in the Kol Haneshamah prayerbook, Siddur Ha’Avodah Shebalev. This prayer was shared on the The Open Siddur Project, which aims to liberate the creative content of Jewish spiritual practice as a commonly held resource for adoption, adaptation, and redistribution.
