"Come to the Jewish Cabaret"
Beyt Mikh YKingl
Arise My Love
Translations for Hebrew and Yiddish Selections from
“Come to the Jewish Cabaret”:
Shalom Rav (From prayerbook)
May there come complete peace for Israel, your people, and all those who dwell on earth
For it is good in your sight to continually bless Israel with your peace. You are the divine source who makes for peace
Beyt Mikh Yingl (Yiddish swing song)
Beg me and I will love you, beg me a little and I’ll know you are mine.
It will delight me and charm me to hear when you beg a little.
We will soon be married under a chuppa with a band playing, our hearts will be filled with love. Because I love you, beg me.
Yedid Nefesh (Jewish mystical verses from 16th C.)
Heart’s delight, source of mercy, draw your servant into your arms. I leap to do your service as quickly as a deer
I stand in awe before you.
Hashkiveynu (From prayerbook)
Help us oh source of life to lie down in peace and arise again our ruler, to life
And shelter us with the canopy of your peace, now and always.
Adon Olam (Traditional)
The Lord of the Universe who reigned
before anything was created.
When all was made by his will
He was acknowledged as King.
And when all shall end
He still all alone shall reign.
He was, He is,
and He shall be in glory.
And He is One, and there's no other,
to compare or join Him.
Without beginning, without end
and to Him belongs dominion and power.
And He is my G-d, my living G-d.
to Him I flee in time of grief,
and He is my miracle and my refuge,
who answers the day I shall call.
To Him I commit my spirit,
in the time of sleep and awakening,
even if my spirit leaves,
G-d is with me, I shall not fear.
Israeli Medley (Israeli folk songs)
Next year we will relax on the porch and enjoy watching the children play and see the birds in flight
Wait and see how wonderful it will be, next year.
Send blessings from Zion and behold her beauty, the beauty of Jerusalem for all who love her and wish for peace.
The walls of the City of David will be guarded all day and night.
Evening descends and our songs rise to the heavens.
Our hora dance returns again and again. Our path has no end and the chain continues as one heart, always
T’fillat Haderech- Lyrics in English by Deborah Lynn Friedman. Poetic translation of traditional prayer.
Translation of Title: “A Prayer for the Journey”.
