A Prayer of the Jewish People

Ani ma’amin b’emunah sh’leimah b’viat hamashiach, v’af al pi sh’yitmameah, im kol zeh achakeh lo b’chol yom sheyavo.
אֲנִי מַאֲמִין בֶּאֱמוּנָה שְׁלֵמָה בְּבִיאַת הַמָּשִֽׁיחַ, וְאַף עַל פִּי שֶׁיִּתְמַהְמֵֽהַּ, עִם כָּל זֶה אֲחַכֶּה לּוֹ בְּכָל יוֹם שֶׁיָּבוֹא.

I believe with perfect faith in the coming of the Messiah, and, though he tarry, I will wait daily for his coming.

Translation from The Standard Prayer book by Simeon Singer (1915) (public domain)

Based on the twelfth of Rambam’s thirteen principles of faith.

Ani Ma’amin plays at the beginning of the permanent exhibition Shoah in Block 27 at Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum in Oświęcim, Poland which was designed by Yad Vashem Institute.
