Day Of Rest

Sung to the tune of “Be Our Guest” from Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast”

Day of rest,
Day of rest,
Fridays really are the best
Light the candles, say the blessings,
Let your spirit do the rest

Glass of wine,
Challah bread,
Or a dinner roll instead
We don’t care if you’re not Jewish
Black, white, purple, pink or bluish

Take a break
From the week
Rest your head and weary feet
Cuz Friday nights are never second-best
Invite your friends to dine,
Serve them a lot of wine,
Day of Rest,
Day of Rest,
Day of Rest!

Day of rest,
Day of rest
Put our Shabbos to the test
Paper plates or fancy dishes
Try the tsimis – it’s delicious!

Tell some jokes,
Sing some songs,
On Shabbat, you can’t go wrong
Spend some time at your own table
Bake a kugel if you’re able

Throw your cares,
To the wind
Let tranquility begin
This weekly holiday is heaven-blessed
So come and lift your glass,
Another week has passed
Day of rest,
Day of rest,
Day of rest!
-Lyrics by Adam Sank, Music and Singing by Drew Brody

Why make an account?

Because why use any of your precious brain cells to remember where you kept those great readings that you’ll use someday at Jeffrey’s B Mitzvah? Make an account, keep the readings there. Easy peasy. The only thing you’ll need to remember is your password, and from personal experience that’s hard enough.
