Hassal Siddur Pesach

image of the Hebrew text of the prayer.

The melody comes from the Hungarian family of Elisabeth Reiner z"l at the beginning of the 20th century. If you think you know who the composer is, please contact us and report the information.

[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.

Translation by Rabbi Shai Gluskin
