This traditional Hebrew psalm is often sung at the beginning of Shabbat. Loosely translated it means: Peace be unto you. May you come in peace. May you be in peace, May your departure be in peace. For He will instruct His angels in your behalf, to guard you in all your ways. The Lord will guard your going and your coming from now and for all time.

Shalom aleichem, malachei hashalom, malachei Elyon, mimelech malchei ham’lachim, Hakadosh Baruch Hu.

Bo-achem I’shalom, malachei hashalom, malachei Elyon, mimelech malchei ham’lachim, Hakadosh Baruch Hu.

Bar’chuni I’shalom, malachei hashalom, malachei Elyon, mimelech malchei ham’lachim, Hakadosh Baruch Hu.

Tzeit’chem I’shalom, malachei hashalom, malachei Elyon, mimelech malchei ham’lachim, Hakadosh Baruch Hu.

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.
