GerryM HAPPY (C)HANUKKAH (20) ADD: Hanerot Halalu 16 Dec 20


I think Hanerot Halalu hasn't been posted to Mudcat. It's a prayer recited after lighting the Hanukah candles. The following lyrics use only the first four words of the prayer:

Bbr> HANEROT HALALU

Hanerot, hanerot, hanerot halalu (x2)
Anu madlikin (x2)
Hanerot halalu anu madlikin

Hanukah, Hanukah, by these lights remember (x2)
When we lived in peace (x2)
By these lights remember when we lived in peace.

Repeat first verse.

The English verse is not a translation of the Hebrew. All the Hebrew says is, "We kindle these lights."

There are some very nice recordings online.
This is Mare Winningham.
This one was not identified by the person who posted it, but a commenter correctly identified it as (Priscilla) Herdman, (Anne) Hills & (Cindy) Mangsen, from the Voices of Winter album.
