Havdalah Service by B'nai B'rith Youth Organization with Guitar Chords


On Fridays we usually post a musical welcome to Shabbat with a version of Shalom AleichemLecha Dodi, or Adon Olam. But this week we're skipping to the end of Shabbat and continuing the series of Havdalah services that we started a year ago.

There's a rich lode of musical endings to Shabbat, and Havdalah ceremonies around the world reflect the traditional and local musical tastes of each location.

Any one interested in leading the Havdalah ceremony can use this video to help make the experience as moving and enriching as possible. Included are Havdalah chords and choreography; the Hebrew, English and transliteration of the Havdalah Blessings; and a beautiful rendition of the ceremony performed by BBYO song leaders Eric Hunker, Happie Hoffman, Stephen Brickman, Deb Winter, Josh Cohen and Rachel Wolman.

Shabbat Shalom and Shavua Tov. Enjoy!
