SHEHECHIYANU:

This blessing is said whenever something pleasant that has not happened for a while is encountered, and happy occasions. The blessing is also recited upon such occasions as affixing a mezuzah (particularly on a new home). 

 

Baruch ata Adonai Eloheinu, melech ha'olam, she'heheyanu v'kiy'manu v'higi'anu la'z'man ha'zeh.

"Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, Who has kept us alive, sustained us, and enabled us to reach this season."

Y’VA-REH’CH’CHA: 

Ancient Three Fold Blessing taught us by Aaron, Moses’ brother when blessing someone.

 

Y’va-reh’ch’cha  Adonai  v’yish m’reh-cha

Ya-eir Adonai  pa-nav  ei-leh-cha  vi-chi-neh-ka

Yi-sa  Adonai  pa-nav  ei-leh-cha v’ya-seim  l’cha  shalom 

May the Lord bless you and keep you.  May the Lord lift His face upon you, and be gracious unto you.  May God the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give to you peace.
