Lecha Dodi לכה דודי

Come, my beloved, with a chorus of praise,
Welcome the Sabbath Bride, the Queen of the days.

“Keep and Remember”!—said in one single utterance
Adonai the One, made us hear:
One is the name of God, One is Adonai!
Reflected in fame, in glory, and in praise!

To welcome the Sabbath, we joyously hurry;
It is forever a fountain of blessing—
In God’s primordial planning, it came last of all days,
But even then was the crown of creation.

O holy sanctuary and royal city
arise from your desolate years!
Too long have you dwelled in the valley of tears,
Now God’s tenderness will rain down upon you.

Shake off the dust, O Israel! Arise!
Dress up in your finest clothes, My people,
for through Jesse of Bethlehem
you will draw nearer to Me and be redeemed.

Awake! Awake! The new light is shining!
With that radiance, the world will glow;
Sing! For darkness is hidden by joyful praise—
Adonai’s glory brings light to you!

May your oppressors be challenged
and your enemies defeated;
God will exalt and rejoice in you,
Joyful as a bridegroom celebrating with his bride.

Stretch out thy borders to the left and to the right;
Give honor to Adonai in Whom we delight—
The Messiah is coming to gladden our sight,
And we shall rejoice in pleasant fulfillment.

L'chah dodi likrat kolah, p'nei shabat n'kab'lah.

Shamor v'zachor b'dibur echad,
hishmi-anu eil ham'yuchad,
Adonai echad ush'mo echad, l'sheim ul'tiferet v'lithilah.
L'chah dodi...

Likrat shabat l'chu v'neil'chah,
ki hi m'kor hab'rachah, meirosh mikedem n'suchah,
sof ma-aseh b'machashavah t'chilah.
L'chah dodi...

Mikdash melech ir m'luchah,
kumi tz'i mitoch hahafeichah,
rav lach shevet b'eimek habacha,
v'hu yachamol alayich chemlah.
L'chah dodi...

Hitna-ari mei-afar kumi, livshi bigdei tifarteich ami, al yad ben yishai beit halachmi, kor'vah el nafshi g'alah.
L'chah dodi...

Hitor'ri hitor'ri, ki va oreich kumi ori, uri uri shir dabeiri, k'vod Adonai alayich niglah.
L'chah dodi...

V'hayu limshisah shosayich, v'rachaku kol m'val'ayich, yasis alayich elohayich, kimsos chatan al kolah.
L'chah dodi...

Yamin us'mol tifrotzi, v'et Adonai ta-aritzi, al yad ish ben partzi, v'nism'chah v'nagilah.
L'chah dodi...

לְכָה דוֹדִי...

In some communities the congregation rises and faces the doorway in order to greet the Sabbath Bride. In addition, we bow and then turn back to the front of the room, to acknowledge her entrance.

Enter in peace, O crown of your husband. Enter in gladness, enter in joy. Come to the people that keeps its faith. Enter, O bride! Enter, O bride!

Bo-i v'shalom ateret balah, gam b'simchah uv'tzaholah, toch emunei am s'gulah, bo-i chalah, bo-i chalah.
L'chah dodi...

בּֽוֹאִי בְשָׁלוֹם עֲטֶרֶת בַּעְלָהּ, גַּם בְּשִׂמְחָה וּבְצָהֳלָה, תּוֹךְ אֱמוּנֵי עַם סְגֻלָּה, בּֽוֹאִי כַלָּה, בּֽוֹאִי כַלָּה.
לְכָה דוֹדִי...

Chatzi Kaddish חצי קדיש

(Mourner's Kaddish) Rise for the Chatzi Kaddish and remain standing for Bar’chu.

Reader:

Magnified and sanctified is God’s great name in the world created according to divine will. May God’s majesty reign during your lifetime and throughout your days, and during the life of all the house of Israel, speedily and soon, and let us say, Amen.

Yitgadal v'yitkadash sh'meih raba. B'al'ma di v'ra chiruteih, v'yamlich malchuteih b'chayeichon uv'yomeichon uv'chayei d'chol beit yisra-eil, ba-agala uvizman kariv, v'imru amein.

יִתְגַּדַּל וְיִתְקַדַּשׁ שְׁמֵהּ רַבָּא. בְּעָלְמָא דִּי בְרָא כִרְעוּתֵיהּ, וְיַמְלִיךְ מַלְכוּתֵיהּ בְּחַיֵּיכוֹן וּבְיוֹמֵיכוֹן וּבְחַיֵּי דְכָל בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל, בַּעֲגָלָא וּבִזְמַן קָרִיב, וְאִמְרוּ אָמֵן.

All:

Let God’s great name be blessed forever and for all eternity.

May the name of the Holy One be blessed, praised and glorified, exalted, extolled and honored, magnified and lauded: yet, we remember that God exists well beyond any the blessings and hymns, praises and consolations that we say here on earth; and let us say, Amen.

Y'hei sh'meih raba m'varach l'alam ul'al'mei al'maya.

Yitbarach v'yishtabach v'yitpa-ar v'yitromam v'yitnasei v'yithadar v'yitaleh v'yithalal sh'meih d'kudsha b'richhu birchata v'shirata tushb'chata v'nechemata, da-amiran b'al'ma, v'imru amein.

יְהֵא שְׁמֵהּ רַבָּא מְבָרַךְ לְעָלַם וּלְעָלְמֵי עָלְמַיָּא.

Reader:
יִתְבָּרַךְ וְיִשְׁתַּבַּח וְיִתְפָּאַר וְיִתְרוֹמַם וְיִתְנַשֵּׂא וְיִתְהַדָּר וְיִתְעַלֶּה וְיִתְהַלָּל שְׁמֵהּ דְּקֻדְשָׁא בְּרִיךְ הוּא, בִּרְכָתָא וְשִׁירָתָא תֻּשְׁבְּחָתָא וְנֶחֱמָתָא, דַּאֲמִירָן בְּעָלְמָא, וְאִמְרוּ אָמֵן.

Sh'ma and Its Blessings

Bar'chu ברכו

Reader: The reader faces the ark and bows while saying the first line “Bar’chu et Adonai hamvorach”.

Praise God, source of blessing.

Bar'chu et Adonai hamvorach.

בָּרְכוּ אֶת יְיָ הַמְבֹרָךְ.

The congregation bows and says “Baruch Adnoai .....”
Then the Reader bows and repeats the same line.

Praise be the One to whom our praise is due now and forever!

Baruch Adonai ham'vorach l'olam va-ed.

Please be seated

Ma'ariv Aravim מעריב ערבים

Blessed are You, Adonai our God, Sovereign of the universe whose word brings on the evening twilight. With wisdom You open the gates of the heavens, and with understanding make the ages pass and the seasons cycle. You arrange the stars across the sky, according to Your will. You create day and night; You roll away the light from before the darkness, and the darkness from before the light; You make the day pass and bring on the night, separating day from night. (Reader) You are a living and enduring God, may You reign over us for ever and ever. Blessed are You, Adonai our God, who brings on the evening twilight.

Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu melech ha-olam, asher bidvaro ma-ariv aravim, b'choch'mah potei-ach sh'arim, uvitvunah m'shaneh itim, umachalif et haz'manim, um'sadeir et hakochavim b'mishm'roteihem baraki-a kirtzono. Borei yom valay'lah, goleil or mip'nei choshech, v'choshech mip'nei or. Uma-avir yom umeivi lay'lah, umavdil bein yom uvein lay'lah, Adonai tz'va-ot sh'mo. Eil chai v'kayam, tamid yimloch aleinu l'olam va-ed. Baruch atah Adonai, hama-ariv aravim.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, אֶלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, אֲשֶׁר בִּדְבָרוֹ מַעֲרִיב עֲרָבִים, בְּחָכְמָה פּוֹתֵחַ שְׁעָרִים, וּבִתְבוּנָה מְשַׁנֶּה עִתִּים, וּמַחֲלִיף אֶת הַזְּמַנִּים, וּמְסַדֵּר אֶת הַכּוֹכָבִים בְּמִשְׁמְרוֹתֵיהֶם בָּרָקִיעַ כִּרְצוֹנוֹ. בּוֹרֵא יוֹם וָלָיְלָה, גּוֹלֵל אוֹר מִפְּנֵי חשֶׁךְ, וְחשֶׁךְ מִפְּנֵי אוֹר. וּמַעֲבִיר יוֹם וּמֵֽבִיא לָיְלָה, וּמַבְדִּיל בֵּין יוֹם וּבֵין לָיְלָה, יְיָ צְבָאוֹת שְׁמוֹ.(Reader) אֵל חַי וְקַיָּם, תָּמִיד יִמְלוֹךְ עָלֵינוּ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, הַמַּעֲרִיב עֲרָבִים.

Sh'ma שמע

The first line of the Sh'ma is recited out loud and in unison, with the right hand covering the eyes. "Baruch Shem K'vod" is recited in an undertone.

Hear, O Israel: Adonai is our God, Adonai is one.

Blessed is God’s glorious majesty forever and ever.

Sh'ma Yisra-eil, Adonai Eloheinu Adonai Echad.

Baruch sheim k'vod malchuto l'olam va-ed.

שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל, יְיָ אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ, יְיָ אֶחָד.

ברוך שם כבוד מלכותו לעולם ועד.
