Shlomit is Building a Sukkah

Lyrics & music: Namoi shemer

Shlomit is building a sukkah 
Full of light and greenery 
That's why today she's so busy. 
But it's not simply a sukkah 
Full of light and greenery - 
Shlomit is building a sukkah of peace ("sukkat shalom"). 

She will not forget to lay out 
The lulav and the myrtle leaves (hadasim), 
A branch of green willow, 
A pomegranate within its leaves, 
And all the fruits of autumn, 
With its fragrance of orange groves. 

And when Shlomit says 
Look! It's already finished! 
Suddenly something wondrous will happen: 
All the neighbors will come, 
It will be a swarm - 
And there will be room for everyone! 

Then, through the roof of branches, 
With a bright glow as though it were a diamond 
She will spot a star, saying: 
-Shalom, wondrous sukkah, 
How fine and how pleasing it is - 
That Shlomit build a sukkah of peace.
