Pesach Music

V'hi She-am'da (composed by Cantor Anita Schubert)  Listen here

V'hi she-a-m'da la-avoteinu v'lanu
Shelo echad bilvad amad aleinu l'chaloteinu
Ela she-b'khol dor vador o-m'dim aleinu l'chaloteinu
V'hakadosh barukh hu matzileinu mi-yadam 

Avadim Hayinu (composed by Cantor Anita Schubert)  Listen here

Avadim hayinu l'far-o b'Mitzrayim
We were slaves to Pharoah in Egypt-land
Slaves we were in Mitzrayim

Vayotzi-einu Adonai Eloheinu misham
b'yad chazaka uvizro-a n'tuya

Adonai our God brought us out
The Holy One took us from that land
with a strong hand and an outstretched arm
with an outstretched arm and strong hand

Eser Makot (composed by Cantor Anita Schubert)  Listen here

Dam, tz'fardei-a, kinim, arov, dever
Sh'chin, barad, arbeh, choshekh, makat b'chorot

Blood instead of water, frogs jump everywhere
Swarms of insects teeming, what a scare
Wild beasts, cattle plague, boils, hail, locusts fly
Darkness, all first-born die

Sefirat Ha-omer--Counting of the Omer (composed by Cantor Anita Schubert)  Listen here: Sefirat Ha-omer.mp3

Hin'ni muchan umzuman, we are ready to fulfill the mitzva
of counting the days since we fled from Egypt,
slaves no more--hal'luya!
We look forward to the festival of Shavuot,
in all we count seven weeks
to the celebration of the revelation:
the gift of Torah, words God speaks.
We bless: Barukh ata Adonai eloheinu melekh ha-olam
asher kid'shanu b'mitzvotav v'tzivanu al sefirat ha-omer.

Day 1: Hayom yom echad la-omer.

Day 25: Hayom chamisha v'esrim yom she-heim sh'losha shavuot v'arba-a yamim la-omer.
