The Blessing for the New Month

This blessing is said and generally sung on the Shabbat of the week that the new month will occur. We should all find what we want and need this coming month of Elul.

May He who performed miracles for our fathers and redeemed them from slavery to freedom, speedily redeem us and gather our dispersed people from the four corners of the earth, uniting all Israel; and let us say, Amen.

May the Holy One, blessed be He, renew it [the month] for us all His people, the House of Israel, for life and for peace, for gladness and for joy, for deliverance and for consolation; and let us say, Amen.
