Shabbat Music

cantor fishbein

“Prayer and song is what draws one to spiritual heights.  What could be more beautiful than seeing and hearing a sanctuary filled with fellow Jews, families, friends and neighbors, joined together in harmony?”
                -Cantor Sol Zim   

Here at The Temple, our Shabbat and holiday worship services, along with our Religious School and Adult education programs are made all the more beautiful with the addition of the melodies of our tradition.   We take pride in creating unique musical experiences that provide meaning and spiritual uplift for every member of our community. 

Our Shabbat worship services offer a blend of traditional and contemporary melodies.  Cantor Fishbein aims to create a musical environment that is comfortable, engaging and inviting for all congregants and guests.  The Cantor and Rabbis love nothing more than to invite the congregation to join with us in words of song and prayer—congregational participation is always welcomed and encouraged! 

On the third Friday night of the month,  The Temple offers a Family Shabbat Service.  We are joined by the talented members of our Junior Choir, directed and accompanied by Dennis Scott.  Our young singers add a tremendous amount of ruach (spirit) to this fun and festive service. 

During the High Holy Days, we are proud to include our Adult Volunteer Choir, directed by Jane Warren, as well as talented instrumentalists who lift our worship to beautiful heights.  Our musicians, accompanied by organ and piano, provide the grandeur and majesty needed to help all of us understand the importance of this special time of the year.

Cantor Fishbein is also excited to teach the members of The Temple about music’s role in Jewish history and culture.  We are hoping to offer classes in Biblical cantillation (chanting), Jewish music history, Israeli music, and much more.  We hope you will join us—not only in song during our worship services—but also in learning more and more about what makes the music of our Jewish tradition so unique and meaningful. 

In addition, Cantor Fishbein is excited to work with musicians of all ages in our community.  If you are a singer or instrumentalist who would be interested in participating in worship and/or special events at The Temple, please email her at cantorfishbein@templenashville.org

Adon Olam

Adon Olam is a recitation of Jewish faith written by Maimonides in his commentary to the Mishnah. It was never formalized as a creed but is often referred to as such. No Jewish creed has ever been agreed upon, although many have been debated.

Adon olam, asher malach, b’tehrem kol y’tzir nivra

L’eit naasa v’cheftzo kol, azai mehlech sh’mo nikra.

V’achrei kichlot hakol, l’vado yimloch nora;

V’hu haya, v’hu hoveh, v’hu yih’yeh b’tifara.

V’hu Ehchad, v’ein sheini l’hamshil lo, l’hachbira;

B’li reisheet, b’li tachlit, v’lo haoz v’hamisra.

V’hu Eili, v’chai goali, v’tzur chevli b’eit tzara;

V’hu nisi umanos li, m’nat kosi b’yom ekra.




Adon Olam (2)

A-don o-lam a-sher ma-lach, b’te-rem kol ye-tzir niv-rah

God is in His Holy Temple

God is in His Holy Temple
Earthly thoughts, be silent now,
While with reverence we assemble,
And before His presence bow.

He is with us, now and ever,
When we call upon His name,
Aiding every good endeavor,
Guiding every upward aim.

God is in His holy temple,
In the pure and holy mind;
In the reverent heart and simple;
In the soul from sense refined.

Banish then each base emotion,
Lift us up, O Lord, to Thee,
Let our souls, in pure devotion,
Temples for Thy worship be.




God of Might

God of Might, God of Right,
We would bow before Thee,
Sing Thy praise in these
days, Celebrate Thy glory,
As we hear, year by year,
Freedom’s wond’rous story:

How God gave to each slave
Promised liberation,
This great word Pharaoh heard
Making proclamation:
Set them free to serve Me
As a holy nation.

We enslaved thus were saved
Through God’s might appearing,
So we pray for the day
When we shall be hearing
Freedom’s call reaching all,
Mankind God revering.




Gonna Lay Down

Lo yisa goy el goy cherev
La yilm’du ad milchama

Lo yisa goy el goy cherev
La yisa el goy cherev, la yilm’du od milehama
Lo yisa goy el goy cherev, lo yisa goy

I’m gonna lay down my sword and shield
Down by the riverside
Down by the riverside
Down by the riverside
I’m gonna lay down my sword and shield
Down by the riverside
Down by the riverside

Shalom Aleichem

Shalom Aleichem is a mystical song introduced by the kabbalists of the 16th century, based on a parable about angels entering the synagogue on the Sabbath eve. Shalom Aleichem is often sung in Jewish homes at the Shabbat dinner table before the meal is served.

Shalom aleichem malachei hashareit
Malachei Elyon
Mimelech malchei hamlachim

How Good It Is (Lecha dodi)

Lecha dodi likrat kala
penei Shabbat nekabela (2)

How good is it to thank the Lord,
To praise Your name, O God Most High;
To tell Your kindness through the day,
Your faithfulness when night draws neigh.

Lecha dodi . . .

With joyous psalms and with the harp,
Will I Your marvels gladly sing;
Your works have made my heart rejoice;
I triump in Your work, my king!

Lecha dodi . . .

Like stately palm the righteous thrive,
As cedar fair they flourish free
In God’s own house; His courts alone
Their dwelling-place and home shall be.

Lecha dodi . . .

Still, in old age, ripe fruit they bear,
Verdant and fresh they still remain
To prove that God, my Rock of Help,
His righteousness does e’er maintain.

Lech dodi . . .

Ki Eshm’rah

Mi Chamocha

Mi Chamocha is sometimes called Miriam's Song or the Song of the Sea. It is a celebration of the crossing of the Red Sea and resonates through all generations as a celebration of God's care and redemptive power in our individual and collective lives.

Mi Shebarach

Mi Sheberach is a supplemental prayer for healing which we often sing with this modern melody by Debbie Friedman. We individually include the names of loved ones who are ill as we pray as a congregation for their healing of body and soul.

Mi shebeirach avoteinu, m’kor habracha l’imoteinu
May the Source of strength
Who blessed the ones before us
Help us find the courage to make our lives a blessing
And let us say, Amen

Mi shebeirach imoteinu, m’kor habracha l’avoteinu
Bless those in need of healing with refuah sh’leimah
The renewal of body, the renewal of spirit,
And let us say, Amen

Rock of Ages

(Az eg-mor be-shir miz-mor
Cha-nu-kat ha-miz-be-ach)
2x

Rock of ages, let our song
Praise Your saving power:
You, amid the raging foes,
Were our sheltering tower.
Furious they assailed us,
But Your arm availed us.
And Your word
Broke their sword
When our own strength failed us.

Children of the Maccabees,
Whether free or fettered,
Wake the echoes of the songs
Where you may be scattered.
Yours the message cheering
That the time is nearing
Which will see
All men free,
Tyrants disappearing.
