  1. Hashkiveinu

From the recording Hashkiveinu

I wrote the chorus and one verse for the kids at URJ Crane Lake Camp in the summer of 2005. I added the other verse, English, and chatimah for a special service of my music at Congregation Rodeph Shalom in Philadelphia, PA in December, 2005. You can sing portions of the song together if you'd like, and either use the whole song or omit some to suit your needs.

Lyrics

Capo 2

Optional lai lai lai, etc. can replace the guitar solo in the intro. You can do this with just voice and guitar, or rock it out.
