The new lunar month of Tevet begins on Friday, so here’s a new Song for the Month of Tevet, which we’ll sing at Shabbat services this week.
Awaken, arise to the wholeness of your being!
Awaken, arise to the beauty of your soul!
Hitor’ri, hitor’ri, ki va orech
(Text from Isaiah 51:17 and 60:1; the Hebrew translates to “Wake up, wake up, for your light is coming. Arise my light!”)
I thought it would be a nice prayer to have in our heads and our hearts (and on our lips!) as we approach the winter solstice and begin the slowly brightening days which will follow.

Or, if you can’t see the embedded audio player, you can download the mp3: AwakenArise
Blessings of light to all as we move through Chanukah,
