Lauren Furman, Voice and Guitar, and Joyce Rosenzweig, Piano
Hashkiveinu Adonai Eloheinu, l'shalom, v'haamideinu shomreinu l'chayim ufros aleinu sukat sh'lomecha, amen.
Grant, O God that we lie down in peace, raise us up to life renewed. Spread over us the shelter of your peace, Amen.
“Shelter us beneath your wings, O Adonai, guard us from all harmful things, O Adonai. Keep us safe throughout the night,’til we wake with morning’s light. Teach us, God, wrong from right, Amen.”
Baruch atah, Adonai haporeis sukat shalom aleinu v'al kol amo Yisrael v'al Yerushalayim, v'al kol ha-amim.
Blessed are You, Adonai, Guardian of Israel, whose shelter of peace is spread over us, of all Your people Israel, over Jerusalem, and over all peoples of the world.
Each night in our liturgy we pray for God to embrace us in God’s sukkah:God’s sheltering wings. The concluding blessing in this prayer, the second stanza
above, is specific to Shabbat and Festivals, and reflects the peace that comes with the holiness
of the day. I have added the text “V’al kol haamim” to include God’s people throughout the world. Each night and each
day, may we all receive a blessing of peace throughout the world.
