Chaia BBG #220's MIT session Havdalah!

A Pluralistic Saturday Evening Service by Sydney Ungar

Havdallah

Blessing over the Wine בורא פרי הגפן

(Lift kiddush cup with wine) and say: “I will lift the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of God”. Then all join in singing the blessing:

Blessed are You, Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, Creator of the fruit of the vine.

BA-RUCH A-TA A-DO-NAY E-LO-HAY-NU ME-LECH HA-O-LAM BO-RAY P'RI HA-GA-FEN.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, בּוֹרֵא פְּרִי הַגָפֶן.

(After singing the blessing pass the kiddush cup around for everyone to take a sip; this is optional.)

Sing a niggun or a Hebrew song to again set the mood for the concluding Sabbath service.

What does Chaia mean?

Contains personal content

In hebrew, the word Chaia means life.

Hamavdil Bein Kodesh l'Chol המבדיל בין קודש לחול

Invite all to join in singing the blessing and as they sing ask everyone present to cup their hands and hold them toward the flame of the candle so that their fingertips cast a shadow on the palm of their hands. In this way, the distinction between light and darkness is illustrated on their hand. We have been known to make shadow plays with our hands at our house.

Blessed are You, Lord our God, ruler of the world, who separates the holy from the mundane, light from darkness, Israel from the other peoples, the seventh day of rest from the six days of work. Blesed are You, Lord, who separates the holy from the mundane.

BA-RUCH A-TA A-DO-NAI E-LO-HAY-NU ME-LECH HA-O-LAM HA-MAV-DIL BAYN KO-DESH L'KHOL. BAYN OR L-CHO-SHEKH. BAYN YIS-RA-EL LA-A-MEEM, BAYN YOM HA-SH-VEE-EE L-SHAY-SHET Y-MAY HA-MA-A-SEH. BA-RUKH A-TA A-DO-NAI HA-MAV-DIL BAYN KO-DESH L'CHOL.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, הַמַּבְדִיל בֵּין קֽדֶשׁ לְחוֹל, בֵּין אוֹר לְחֹֽשֶׁךְ, בֵּין יִשְׂרָאֵל לָעַמִּים, בֵּין יוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי לְשֵׁשֶׁת יְמֵי הַמַּעֲשֶׂה. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, הַמַּבְדִיל בֵּין קֹדֶשׁ לְחוֹל.

Sing a niggun or a Hebrew song and while singin, the Havdalah candle is now extinguished in the wine.

BBG? I thought I signed up for BBYO!

Contains personal content

BBG is the girls part of BBYO. BBG stands for B'nai Brith Girls.
BBG and AZA (the boys) are all under BBYO, we come together as one movement.
BBG seperates the boys and the girls, and creates a sisterhood that we could never have with any AZA!

Hamavdil Bein Kodesh l'Chol, Chatoteinu Hu Yimchol המבדיל בין קודש לחול חטאתינו הוא ימחל

Then the following may be sung.

May God forgive our transgressions and make our people as numerous as the sand, and as the stars of the night.

HA-MAV-DIL BAYN KO-DESH L'CHOL. CHA-TO-TAY-NU HU YIM-CHOL.
ZA-RAY-NU V'CHAS-PAY-NU YAR-BEH KA-CHOL, U-CHE-CHO-CHA-VIM BA-LAY-LA

הַמַּבְדִּיל בֵּין קֽדֶשׁ לְחֹל,
חַטֹּאתֵינוּ הוּא יִמְחֹל,
זַרְעֵנוּ וְכַסְפֵּנוּ יַרְבֶּה כַּחוֹל,
וְכַכּוֹכָבִים בַּלָּיְלָה.

How did BBG start?

65 years ago, Anita Perlman founded BBG as a separate youth group for only girls. She decided to call it the B'nai Brith Girls, and founded San Francisco BBG #1. Soon after, the youth group spread to all over the world, and they are currently BBG chapters in the United States, Bulgaria, United Kingdom, Israel, Turkey, Ireland, Serbia, France and Canada.
