Gevald! - MBD - Efshar Letaken

(aka: Gevald, MBD! Efshar letaken!)

בשעה שישראל נכנסים לצרה אומרים להקדוש הוא: גאל אותנו! (געוואלד! גאל אותנו!) אומר להם הקב"ה: ביטחו בשמי, שכל מי שבוטח בשמי, אני מצילו

Bimromei Eretz - Hamadregot

In the context of the entire CD, this Yotzer is especially it. It is a Yotzer of ר"ה, in'it? I think it isn't in the Machzor Chabadi.

Updated with mp3 and lyrics, and confirmed as Yotzer of Yom Kippur (as evidenced by fifth verse words: Kreivim hayom bichamesh tefillos) according to Avudraham.

Has anyone ever used the term "Chabadittude" before? (TM)

7 Shepherds - Chaim David Saracik

A holdover from, ohhhhhhh, maybe the Samechs? But still finger-pickin' good.

אברהם אבינו איש חסד
יצחק אבינו נזר בגבורה
יעקב אבינו כליל תפארת
משה רבינו רעיא מהימנא
אהרן הכהן אוהב שלום
יוסף הצדיק וצדיק יסוד העולם
*דוד מלך ישראל מלכא משיחא

*Corrected from mistyped חי וקיים.

November Rain - Guns 'n Roses

Once voted the Best Music Video Ever. But Nothing Lasts Forever. Even Cold November Rain. :D

Hat tip to the Hat Tipper for tipping me off to the obsessibility of this and getting me to too.

Bearvot Hanegev - Leibele Jinich, Yaffa Yarkoni

Israeli Folk Song, haunting or touching?

Yiddish - Leibele Jinich

Hebrew - Yaffa Yarkoni



Be'arvot haNegev meetnotzetz hatal.
Be'arvot haNegev eesh magen nafal.
In the plains of the Negev the dew glitters.
In the plains of the Negev a defender has fallen.

Lo noshem hana'ar venadam halev
Et bloreet hasa'har roo'akh telatef. (X2)
The lad is not breathing and the heart has stopped
The wind strokes the moon's forelock. (X2)

Haloomat atzevet veyagon nora
Em zkena neetzevet venoset dvara.
Stricken with sadness and a dreadful grief
An old mother stands and says her piece.

Hadeem'ah neegeret me'eyney eemkha,
Ba kadoor oferet vayfalakh leebkha. (X2)
The tears pour from your mother's eyes,
A bullet of lead came and pierced your heart. (X2)

Az tza'ad kadeema na'ar gva-koma
Vayomar la: Eema, al lakh bedeem'ah.
Then a tall lad strode forward
And said to her: Mom, do not cry.

Bakhooreynoo, Eema, bee'ymey pkooda
Mool son'eynoo, Eema, kekhomat plada. (X2)
Our boys, Mom, in days of command
Face our foes, Mom, like an iron wall. (X2)

Mool shoded vamelekh tzmeh dameem oyen,
Tneenee ve'ehyeh lakh anokhee leven.
Facing a marauder and a bloodthirsty, hostile king,
Allow me and I shall be a son to you.

Be'arvot haNegev hoo lakhatz yada
Eem teertzoo, khevraya, eyn zo agada. (X2)
In the plains of the Negev he pressed her hand.
If you like, friends, this is no fable. (X2)
