Eliyahu and Miriam

We open the door and invite Eliyahu and Miriam into our homes. To show how truly free we are, we send our youngest to open the door. 

Elijah the prophet - may we create a world where everyone experiences redemption and freedom, growth and possibility. Let all who are hungry be fed, let all who are bereaved be comforted, let all who suffer find release.

Miriam the prophet - may we support a world in which our resources are shared widely, where water scarcity is turned into abundance, where we do not turn away from anyone in need.

אֵלִיָהוּ הַנָבִיא, אֵלִיָהוּ הַתִּשְׁבִּי
אֵלִיָהוּ אֵלִיָהוּאֵלִיָהוּהַגִלְעָדִי
בִּמְהֵרָה בימינויָבוֹא אֵלֵינוּ
עִם מָשִׁיחַ בֶּן דָוִד -עִם מָשִׁיחַ בֶּן דָוִד

Eliyahu Hanavi, Eliyahu Hatishbi,

Im Mashiach Ben David.

Elijah the Prophet, Elijahthe Tishbite,
Elijah the Giladite,
Soon may he bring us redemption.

מִרִיַם הַנְבִיאה עז וזִמְרָה בְיָדָה
מִרִיַם תִרְקד אִתָנוּ לְהגדיל זמרת עולם
מִרִיַם תִרְקד אִתָנוּ לְתַקֵן אֶת הֵעולַם
בִמְהֵרַה בְיָמֵנוּ הִיא תְבִיאֵנוּ
אֶל מֵי הַיְשוּעָה, אֶל מֵי הַיְשוּאָה

Miriam haneviyah oz vezimra beyada,
Miriam tirkod itanu lehagdil zimrat olam
Miriam tirkod itanu letakein et haolam
Bimherah beyamenu hee teviyenu
El mey hayeshu'a, el mey hayeshu'a

Miriam the prophet, strength and song in her hand
Miriam, dance with usto increase the song of the world.
Miriam, dance with us to repair the world
Soon may she bring us to the waters of redemption

(Hebrew lyrics by R'Leila Gal Berner)
