We know that in life he left many deeds undone. He, like all of us, led an imperfect life. We pray for you to forgive those failings. May he be protected by the righteous deeds that are his legacy. May those deeds live on. Guardian of the helpless, Source of compassion, protect and comfort his family and friends. Their souls remain tied to him with limitless bonds.
May _______ be granted an eternal existence in your presence. Into Your hands he/she commits his/her soul.
(Silent meditation or time for those gathered to express their- personal farewells, or give voice to unfinished concerns.)

Adonai natan v'Adonai lakach, y'hi shem Adonai m'vorach.
