Lo Alecha

 
לֹא עָלֶיךָ


Lo alecha ham'lacha ligmor, V'lo ata ben chorim l'hibatil mimena.

She-yibaneh beit hamikdash bimheira v'yameinu.
לֹא עָלֶיךָ הַמְּלָאכָה לִגְמֹר וְלֹא אַתָּה בֶן חוֹרִין לְהִבָּטֵל מִמֶּנָּה.

שֶׁיִּבָנֶה בֵּית הַמִקְדָּשׁ בִּמְהֵרָה בְּיָמֵינוּ.

Translation:

It is not your duty to complete the work, but neither are you free to desist from it.

May the Holy Temple be rebuilt speedily in our days.
(B'kol Echad, pg 89)
