about

This prayer is an ancient Jewish prayer, one of the only ones which has been transcending all the different Jewish communities around the globe. It’s been often sung for children before putting them to bed, as a prayer for protection. The lyrics invoke the different angels, Mikhael, Gabriel, Uriel, and Raphael, to protect and surround each of us with health, light, strength, and calls for the support of Shehinat’El, the so-called feminine name of God.dess.

lyrics

Beshem ha Shem
Elohei Isra’El
Beshem ha Shem
Elohei Isma’El*

Mi’mini Mikha’El
Mi’smoli Gabri’El
Mi’lefanaï Uri’El
Mi’akhoraï Refa’El

U me’al Roshi
U me’al Roshi
U me’al Roshi

Shekhinat’El

Los ojos rojos de llorar o de fumar
y el pecho roto por lo que no pudo abarcar
yo soy mujer y en mi cuerpo me metieron este mito
que me cuenta y que me dicta que a ti te necesito
stella cadente
mirando siempre al frente
la nariz apuntando la meta que tengo en mente
y toco piedra
porque me toca vivir
porque vivo lo que me queda por descubrir
y estando contento o descontento pero no me atormento no
