Thread Name: Lyr Req: Rozhinkes Mit Mandlen/Raisins and Almonds
Subject: RE: Rasins and Almonds
Thanks for the information and the lyrics and chords!

The lyrics posted here must be a variation on the song on my tape (likely mine is more modern and yours more traditional). I went back and listened to the lyrics more carefully. They say:

To my little one's cradle in the night,
Comes a wee little goat, snowy white.

The goat will trot to the market,
While mother her watch will keep,
To bring you back rasins and almonds.
Sleep, my little one sleep.

I'd still like to know the name of the event that the gift of rasins and almonds is supposed to celebrate. None of my Jewish friends have heard of it (I don't know anyone Orthodox, though)

Thanks, -Tara
