Welcoming Shabbat in Chanukah 2

Chanukah 5570

Chanukah, Chanukah such a lovely holiday

Pleasant lights all around, little children play

Chanukah, Chanukah tops turn round and round

Spin again, spin all day

Oh, how nice and gay! 

 

Lighting Chanukah Candles

Blessed are you G-d, our Lord King of the universe, who sanctified us with his commandments and commanded us to kindle the light of Chanukah.

 

Blessed are you G-d our Lord, king of the universe who performed miracles for our fathers in those days, at this time.

 

Blessed are you G-d, our Lord, king of the universe who granted us life, sustained us and has enabled us to reach this occasion.

O mighty

O mighty stronghold of my salvation,
to praise You is a delight.
Restore my House of Prayer
and there we will bring a thanksgiving offering.
When You will have prepared the slaughter
for the blaspheming foe,
Then I shall complete with a song of hymn
the dedication of the Altar.

 

The days of Chanukah

The days of Chanukah the dedication of our Sanctuary

With joy and gaiety that fill our hearts

Day and night, spin all the tops

Different kinds of donuts -eat while their hot

 

Make light, bright candles

Kindle the Chanukah lights

Remember the miracles and all the wonders

That came across though the Maccabees

About the Maccabees we'll tell and we'll sing

Of triumph over mighty armies and a king

Jerusalem the city was once again alive

The Israeli nation -restored and revived

 

 

Make light, bright candles

Kindle the Chanukah lights

Remember the miracles and all the wonders

That came across though the Maccabees

 

We carry torches

We carry torches on pitch black nights

The paths beneath our feet are bright

And whomever has a heart thirsty for light – will raise his eyes to our light – and come!

 

No Miracle has happened here, we haven't found a flask of oil

We've gone to the valley we've climbed the mountain

We have found the hidden wells of lights

No miracle happened here we found no oil

We've hewed the rock until we bled, and then there was light!

  

 

THE WEEKLY JOKE

          

The Group Blessing: Someone is to be called up to tell of something good he/she had experienced during the week!

Going to the Light / Ehud Banai

This path begins here

Between the bank branch and the fountain

Not paved, not always marked

This path begins here

 

It crosses town

goes up the mountain

continues to the sea

continues tomorrow as well

cuts the air to new life

 

Walk on it, walk on it now

angel birds from above

follow your steps

From far a light is turned on

Don't digress so you can get back

 

This song begins here

Blue on a white page

Not complete, not always intended

This song begins here

 

It crosses town

goes up the mountain

continues to the sea

continues tomorrow as well

leaps out to the air to new life

 

Blessing Over Cake

Blessed are you G-d, our Lord, king of the universe, who creates various kinds of sustenance.
