כשאני לעצמי
ואתה לא איתי
מה אני כשאני בנפרד
כי אני יהודי
לא הולך לבדי
רק איתך, ידידי, יד ביד
עם אחד, שיר אחד
בוא אחי ותן לי יד
ונוכל לשמוח ולרקוד יחד
כאיש אחד בלב אחד
לא רוצה להיות לבד
רק לנצח שבת אחים גם יחד
להיות משפחה
זהו סוד השמחה
כי ביחד הכל טוב יותר
ואנחנו שרים
כל ישראל חברים
על אף אחד לא נסכים לוותר

אם נצליח לאהוב
ונשיר הנה מה טוב
המשיח עוד יגיע בקרוב

When I am for myself
And you are not with me
What am I when I am separate?
For I am a Jew
I do not go alone
Just with you, my friend, hand in hand
One nation, one song
Come my brother and give me your hand
And we will rejoice and dance together
As one person, with one heart
I don’t want want to be alone,
Just forever brothers sitting together
To be a family
Is the secret of joy
For everything is better together
And we sing
All Israel are friends
We won’t give up on anyone

If we can successfully love
And sing ‘how pleasant..’
The Moshiach will come soon

Life Giving Water


Our sages teach that in the merit of Miriam’s righteousness, a miraculous well accompanied the Jewish people throughout their wanderings in the desert and provided them with water.

Through her unique contribution, Miriam acts as a role model for all Jewish women.

Just as water serves a vital function in the body by dissolving nutrients from food and transporting them to every part of the body, the Jewish woman serves an indispensible function within the Jewish people as a whole.
