By your leave distinguised gentlemen, masters, and teachers:
Blessed art Thou, Adonai our God, King of the univese, Who creates the fruit of the vine. [Respond: Amen.]
Blessed art Thou, Adonai our God, King of the universe, Who has sanctified us with His commandments and was pleased with us, and His holy Sabbath in love and in favor, He gave us a heritage, a memorial of the work of creation. For it is the day beginning for holy convocations, a memorial of the exodus from Egypt. For You chose us and sanctified us from all the nations. And Your holy Sabbath with love and favor you gave us a heritage. Blessed are You, Adonai, Who sanctifies the Sabbath. [Respond: Amen.]
After this blessing is recited, it is customary to give each person present some wine from the Kiddush cup.
