For daughters:

Yesimekh elohim k'sarah, rivkah, rachel, v'leah.

May God make you like Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah.

For sons:

Yesimkha elohim k'efraim u'k'menasheh.

May God make you like Ephraim and Menasheh.

Conclude by reciting the following priestly blessing:

Ye'varekh'ekha Adonai v'yish'merekha. Ya'er Adonai panav eilekha v'y'hunekha. Yisa Adonai panav eilekha v'yaseim lekha shalom.

May God bless you and keep you. May God's face shine on you and may God be gracious unto you. May God lift up God's face toward you and grant you peace.
