Blessing

L’chi lach, to a land that I will show you Leich l’cha, to a place you do not know L’chi lach, on your journey I will bless you And (you shall be a blessing)3x l’chi lach L’chi lach, and I shall make your name great Leich l’cha, and all shall praise your name L’chi lach, to the place that I will show you (L’sim-chat cha-yim)3x l’chi lach

Debbie Friedman

The first time I heard this song was at a baby naming at my synagogue during my year of study before I went to mikvah. Still in my own infancy of my own Jewish life, I appreciated that this song flips between masculine and feminine verb conjugations – leich l’cha for men, l’chi lach for women.

It tumbles me down a path of thinking about how many blessings we can make in a day and makes me think about committing to the challenge of making 100 blessings in a day. The truth is that it would be an accomplishment if I correctly made five.
