Invocation Delivered at Smith's Commencement, 5/21/06

ברוכים הבאים בשם ה'

May all of us be welcomed and blessed by the Source of Holiness we call by so many names. As we begin this joyous celebration, I invite you to appreciate the sacred dimensions of this special day: our graduates and their hard work, the love and support of family and friends, the weather, and the entire Smith community that celebrates with you. We recognize that this community is incomplete today and we send our thoughts and prayers to Maggie and the Worthen family.

ברוך א ה' אלוקינו מלך העולם שהחינו וקימנו והגיענו לזמן הזה

Sovreign of the Universe, we praise you for granting us life, sustaining us, and helping us reach this day.
