“ah-nah dodee v-ah-mar lee koo-mee lakh koo-mee lakh”
My beloved spoke, and said unto me: Rise up

Hark! my beloved is knocking: ‘Open to me, my sister, my love

“dodee lee vah-anee lo”
My beloved is mine, and I am his

“kol dodee dofek dofek peet-khee lee”
Hark! my beloved is knocking, is knocking:’Open to me’

    What could be more beautiful than a wedding in Y’rushalyem, the city where a Bridegroom will someday receive HIS long-awaited Bride?

    My Beloved happened upon a wedding procession in the Old City while we were there on tour. No fancy, staged pictures with perfect lighting and empty streets, but the joy and the magic in the air was a delight for everyone along the way. What special memories such an event must hold for those blessed with a wedding there!

  • What a lovely gentle song. I also like the pictures of the couples after their wedding, one particular couple, the man wearing the kippah is delightful, they are not touching but what a look of happiness and joy on their faces. Love is not always touching, is it!
