Lyrics

Ahavat olam beit yisrael

Am’cha ahavta

Ahavat olam, ahavat olam

 

Thank you for the Torah

Thank you for your love

Thank you for the blessings

You send from up above

 

Ahavat olam beit yisrael

Am’cha ahavta

Ahavat olam, ahavat olam

 

You gave us the commandments

To teach us wrong from right

Please be with us always

As we try to live good lives

 

Ahavat olam beit yisrael

Am’cha ahavta

Ahavat olam, ahavat olam

Behind the Song

Josh Goldberg and I wrote this song when I was visiting L.A. one summer, long before I ever thought of doing an album, let alone with him as my producer!

 

We decided that we wanted to write a kid’s song that incorporated English “repeat after me” lyrics for a prayer that may not be often explained and translated to children.
