Song of the Month

 

This month's song is sung by Rabbi Dr. Minna Bromberg, who led and taught morning worship in Bat Kol, summer 2018.  Bat Kol alumni will all be familiar with this melody for the last verse and the last five words in the book of Psalms.  If you are singing with a group, this beautiful song can be sung as a three part round (each group begins after the previous group finishes the word ha’neshamah). The word neshamah means "breath" in Biblical Hebrew, and "soul" in Rabbinic, Medieval, and modern Hebrew.  Consider what it means to call to every breathing creature, and every soul, to praise God.

כֹּל הַנְּשָׁמָה תְּהַלֵּל יָהּ הַלְלוּיָהּ

Kol ha’neshamah tehallel Yah, halleluyah

Let everything that breathes praise the Lord!  Praise the Lord!
