HAEREV BABAYIT

Ha'erev babayit, ner chag melavleiv
Lezecher hapeleh beyerach Kislev.
Haner hadolek, bo remez va'ot
Liy'mei gevurah, nisim ut'shu'ot.

Re'u vehabitu banot uvanim:
Haner mitlake'ach be'elef g'vanim.
Hu ner Yisrael he'atik, hechadash,
Midor eilei dor oro yitchadash.

THIS EVENING IN OUR HOME

This evening in our home, flickers a festive light
To record the wonder of the month of Kislev tonight.
The candle burns, with its import as a sign
Of heroism, miracles and salvation in that time.

Girls and boys, please observe this sight:
The candle burns in a thousand hues.
'Tis the light of Israel, ancient and new,
From age to age shall it be renewed.
