Havdalah---הַבְדָּלָה

Havdalah /Separation  

(Or Redemption?)

(by Ben Newman)

Am to G

Do you get the joke?

One saves me, I do float

Above the stars into the sky

A human being can fly

 

; with courage, unafraid

A decision must be made

Through strength and song

We will prevail before it is too long
 

Draw water in joy, from the living well.

For freedom we must all stand up and ring a bell
Being saves the bless-ed folk

Seeing bring us to our yolk
There is one Being who has many faces in all worlds

 

Being of Many Faces, a fortress of secret truth

Lucky is the one who trusts in You.

Answer us too,

Sacred Power when we call.

Grant us light, gladness and honor for all

 

Miracle of Saftey brought to those before

possibilities and solutions we cannot ignore

 

I lift the Saving Cup and call upon

The Source of Life

Which saves us from all wickedness and strife::

 

We give thanks for the fruit of the vine

We give thanks for spices fine

We give thanks for the light of fire. We give thanks for the One that separates.

 

Between the holy and the mire,

yay dai dai dai dai….ETC...

 

הִנֵּה אֵל יְשׁוּעָתִי, אֶבְטַח וְלֹא אֶפְחָד,

כִּי עָזִּי וְזִמְרָת יָהּ יְיָ, וַיְהִי לִי לִישׁוּעָה.

וּשְׁאַבְתֶּם מַֽיִם בְּשָׂשׂוֹן, מִמַּעַיְנֵי הַיְשׁוּעָה.

לַייָ הַיְשׁוּעָה, עַל עַמְּךָ בִרְכָתֶֽךָ סֶּֽלָה.

יְיָ צְבָאוֹת עִמָּֽנוּ, מִשְׂגָּב לָנוּ אֱלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב סֶֽלָה.

יְיָ צְבָאוֹת, אַשְרֵי אָדָם בֹּטֵֽחַ בָּךְ. יְיָ הוֹשִֽׁיעָה, הַמֶּֽלֶךְ יַעֲנֵֽנוּ בְיוֹם קָרְאֵֽנוּ.

לַיְּהוּדִים הָיְתָה אוֹרָה וְשִׂמְחָה וְשָׂשׂוֹן וִיקָר.

כֵּן תִּהְיֶה לָּֽנוּ. כּוֹס יְשׁוּעוֹת אֶשָּׂא, וּבְשֵׁם יְיָ אֶקְרָא.

 

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ מֶֽלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, בּוֹרֵא פְּרִי הַגָּֽפֶן.

 

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ מֶֽלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, בּוֹרֵא מִינֵי בְשָׂמִים.

 

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ מֶֽלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, בּוֹרֵא מְאוֹרֵי הָאֵשׁ.

 

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ מֶֽלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, הַמַּבְדִיל בֵּין קֹֽדֶשׁ לְחוֹל, בֵּין אוֹר לְחֹֽשֶׁךְ, בֵּין יִשְׂרָאֵל לָעַמִּים, בֵּין יוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי לְשֵֽׁשֶׁת יְמֵי הַמַּעֲשֶׂה. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, הַמַּבְדִיל בֵּין קֹֽדֶשׁ לְחוֹל.

Fire on the Altar
by Rabbi Shefa Gold

 

אֵשׁ תָּמִיד תּוּקַד עַל–הַמִּזְבֵּחַ לֹא תִכְבֶּה
Aish tamid tukad al hamizbayach; lo tichbeh

Aish tamid (2x)

Lo Tichbeh (4x)

 

(Leviticus 6:6)


 

Fire always shall be kept burning on the altar; it shall not go out.
Inside our hearts is a flame that must be kept burning. That fire is our
passion for Life, our yearning for God, our curiosity about the
mysteries, our sparkle of humor, our enthusiasm for the Work. We keep
that fire burning by engaging in spiritual practice, by surrounding
ourselves with beauty, by giving and receiving love and support, and by
fully connecting with what (and whom) we love.
It is crucial to bring attention to that flame on the altar of the heart – to
feed that fire and to guard it with loving vigilance.
