Sim Shalom

Sim Shalom (Hebrew: שִׂים שָׁלוֹם‎; "Grant Peace") is a blessing that is recited at the end of the morning Amidah and the Mincha Amidah during fast days in the Ashkenazic tradition. In the Sefardic, Chasidic-Sefardic, and Nusach Ari rites, Sim Shalom is said at all prayer services. During the evening service and the Mincha servicer of non-fast days, a different version of this prayer, Shalom Rav (שָׁלוֹם רָב‎), is said instead.


Hebrew Text Translation
שִׂים שָׁלוֹם טוֹבָה וּבְרָכָה חֵן וָחֶֽסֶד וְרַחֲמִים Grant peace, goodness, blessing, grace, loving kindness, and mercy
עָלֵֽינוּ וְעַל כָּל יִשְׂרָאֵל עַמֶּֽךָ to us and to all of Israel Your people
בָּרְכֵֽנוּ אָבִֽינוּ כֻּלָּֽנוּ כְּאֶחָד בְּאוֹר פָּנֶֽיךָ bless us, our Father, all of us as one with the light of Your face
כִּי בְאוֹר פָּנֶֽיךָ נָתַֽתָּ לָּֽנוּ ה' אֱלֹקינוּ for by the light of Your face You have given us, Hashem our God,
תּוֹרַת חַיִּים וְאַֽהֲבַת חֶֽסֶד וּצְדָקָה וּבְרָכָה וְרַחֲמִים וְחַיִּים וְשָׁלוֹם the Torah of life, and love of kindness, and righteousness and blessing and mercy and life and peace
וְטוֹב בְּעֵינֶֽיךָ לְבָרֵךְ אֶת עַמְּךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּכָל עֵת וּבְכָל שָׁעָה בִּשְׁלוֹמֶֽךָ and may it be good in Your eyes to bless Your people Israel at all times and in every hour with Your peace.
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה' הַמְבָרֵךְ אֶת עַמּוֹ יִשְׂרָאֵל בַּשָּׁלוֹם Blessed are You, Hashem, who blesses His people Israel with peace.
