Chassal Siddur Pesach


חַסַל סִדּוּר פֶּסַח כְּהִלְכָתוֹ,

כְּכָל מִשְׁפָּטוֹ וְחֻקָתוֹ.

כַּאֲשֶׁר זָכִינוּ לְסַדֵּר אוֹתוֹ,

כֵּן נִזְכֶּה לַעֲשׂוֹתוֹ.

זָךְ שׁוֹכֵן מֵעוֹנָה,

קוֹמֵם קְהַל עֲדַת מִי מָנָה.

בְּקָרוֹב נַהֵל נִטְעֵי כַנָּהּ,

.פְּדוּיִם לְצִיּוֹן בְּרִנָּה

Khasal siddur Pesakh, kehilkhato
kekhol mishpato, vekhukato
ka’asher zakhinu lesader oto
ken nizkeh la’asoto
zakh shokhen me’ona

komem kehal adat me manah
bekarov nahel nitei chanah
peduyim leZiyon be’rina

Translator’s note: The translation below does not attempt to bring coherence to a liturgical piece that is rich with ambiguity. It is the translator’s belief that bringing coherence to ambiguity leaves the reader on the sidelines. If the text doesn’t “make sense” then more is required of the reader to engage with the text. That engagement is exactly what Judaism asks of us.

The Passover Seder is concluded
As all its laws and rules are fulfilled.

Just as we have merited to order it,
so too may we merit to do it.

Pure One dwelling in Ma’on
Creator of Congregation Who Can Count Them
Soon guide the new shoots of this people
Liberated to Zion with shouts of joy.

Learning to Say "We": Writing Identity

In this immersion, we will reflect and expand on our personal experiences of identity, using writing exercises and in-depth discussions to think about, challenge, discover, explore, and experiment with different ways to identify ourselves, to consider how those ways connect us to and separate us from others, and how they represent and misrepresent aspects of who we are.

Four sessions, starting June 15th
