May 21, 2013 ~ Shabbat BEHA'ALOTEKHA. Maqam SIGAH.
|Mossaei Shabbat||67||76||במוצאי יום מנוחה||Maqam Bayat Very old pizmon. Found in Mahzor Vitry. Its composer is Ya'acob Manoi, whose name is spelled in the acrostic beginning with the second stanza. It begins with a plea that God gather Israel together from exile during the coming week. It asks that He redeem Israel from its current state of degradation and bring it to the Temple. Closes with a prayer for Elijah the prophet, traditionally the herald of the Messiah.||
