This song is based on Priestly Benediction, Number 6:23-27

It is a particularly well known passage- shared from one generation to the next at life cycle events and around Shabbat dinner tables. This is a creative translation of those words.

Bless the kids! Bless each other!

I love many Jewish traditions- but the ritual of welcoming Shabbat each week and blessing one another is one of my favorites. I wrote this tune (which might be my personal favorite and the one I share most frequently) not only to make the text and meaning of the tradition ‘Priestly Blessing’ more accessible to young children and families- but to create a dynamic that invites all of the family members to recognize and to be appreciated for the contributions that they make.

Family Blessing Song (Y’varechecha) Lyrics

(Growups Echo)

You are a blessing
Every Day
When I watch you grow
Learn and play
So I’ll love you and keep you
and I’ll hug you and kiss you
Forever ever and ever, forever and ever (and ever)

(Kid’s Echo)
You are a blessing
Every day
When you care for me
help our family
I’ll love you and keep you
and I’ll hug you and kiss you
Forever ever and ever, Forever and ever (and ever)

(Everyone Echo)
May God Bless You
May God Keep You
Shine light on you
Help you find peace
May God watch you
and stay and with you
Forever ever and ever, Forever and ever (and ever)

Y’varech’cha
Adonai v’yishm’recha.
Ya-eir Adonai
pahnav eilecha vichuneka.
Yisa Adonai
pahnav eilecha
v’yahsim l’cha
shalom.
