Songs for Shabbat

Mozis Niggun by Joey Weisenberg

L'cha Dodi arranged by Josh Warshawsky​​​

לְכָה דוֹדִי לִקְרַאת כַּלָּה. פְּנֵי שַׁבָּת נְקַבְּלָה 
Lecha dodi likrat kala, p’nei Shabbat n’kabelah! 

בּֽוֹאִי בְשָׁלוֹם עֲטֶרֶת בַּעְלָהּ. גַּם בְּשִׂמְחָה וּבְצָהֳלָה. 
תּוֹךְ אֱמוּנֵי עַם סְגֻּלָּה. בּֽוֹאִי כַלָּה, בּֽוֹאִי כַלָּה
Bo’i v’shalom, ateret ba’ala, 
Gam b’simcha uv’ tzhala. 
Toch emunei am segula; Bo’i chala, bo’i chala. 
Come, my friend, to meet the bride; let us welcome the Sabbath. 


Songs for the Month of Elul

Achat Shaalti by Israel Katz

Achat sha-alti mei-eit Adonai, otah avakkeish
shivti b'veit Adonai, kol y'mei hayyai
la-chazot b'no-am Adonai u-l'vakkeir b'heikhalo.

One thing I ask of Adonai - this I seek:
to dwell in the House of G-d all the days of my life,
to behold G-d's beauty and visit in G-d's sanctuary.
