3. Ani Roeh Shalom

Ani roeh anashim ohavim
Ani roeh anashim yad b'yad
Ani roeh shalom (4X)

Shalom batzafon, shalom badarom
Shalom b'mizrach uma'arav
Shalom b'chol haolam
Zeh mah sheanachnu nireh
Ani roeh shalom (4x)

I see loving people. I see people together. I see peace. Peace in the north, peace in the south, peace in the east and west, peace in all of the world, this is what we shall see. I see peace.

4. Ani Yoshev

(This song was written during a Melton retreat with Debbie Friedman in Idyllwild, California. This was the same weekend Debbie wrote The Hail Blessing. The participants were out hiking in the mountains when it started to hail on us. We all gathered under a large tree for shelter and recited the hail blessing. Immediately, the hail ceased. Debbie used the event as inspiration for her song. I sat down by a stream and composed Ani Yoshev.)

Haruach noshevet baeitzim
Harafel balah et haeitzim
Ani yoshev v’choshev al nifl’ot hashem

Hamayim m’va’ah’b’im bazerem
Hatzipur shar merosh anaf
Ani yoshev v’choshev al nifl’ot hashem

Habarad v’hageshem yordim
Ha’ananim ne’elamim v’mofiah keshet
Ani yoshev v’choshev al nifl’ot hashem

The wind blows in the trees.
The fog swallows up the trees.
I sit and think about the wonders of Hashem.

The water bubbles in the stream.
The bird sings on top of the branch.
I sit and think about the wonders of Hashem.

The hail and the rain come down.
The clouds disappear bringing a rainbow.
I sit and think about the wonders of Hashem.

10. Sh'vu Basukkah

Sh’vu basukkah yeladim
Wave the lulav ‘round
You shall dwell for seven days
In a hut above the ground
Lulav v’etrog hadas v’aravah(2x)

11. Sukkah Boogie

Our ancestors came out from Egypt Land
And they wandered through the desert
‘till they found the Promised Land
For housing they didn't have too much time to futz
So they quickly put together a bunch of flimsy huts

That's why we do...

The Sukkah boogie, yeah, the Sukkah boogie, yeah, the Sukkah boogie, yeah, yeah!

In a Sukkah you shall dwell for seven whole days
With the etrog and the lulav that we wave in six ways
(North and South and East and West
Up and down, our boogie is the best!)
Looking at the stars and eating a festive meal
Maybe this Sukkah thing ain't such a bad deal

That's why we do...

The Sukkah boogie, yeah, the Sukkah boogie, yeah, the Sukkah boogie, yeah, yeah!
