The Words

Translation


Yeme ha Hanukkah, hanukat mikdasheinu
B'gil uv'simcha m'mal'im et libeinu
Layla vayom s'vivoneinu yisov
Sufganiyot nochal gam larov
Ha'iru, hadliku nerot Hanukkah rabim
Al hanisim v'al hanifla'ot
Asher chol'lu haMakabim
Al hanisim v'al hanifla'ot
Asher chol'lu haMakabim


These days of Hanukkah, the dedication of our Sanctuary
With glee and joy we fill our hearts
Day and night our dreidels' spin
We eat many Hanukkah pastries
Give light! Kindle many  Hanukkah candles
For the miracles and the wonders
That the Maccabees brought forth
For the miracles and the wonders
That the Maccabees brought forth
