We will be teaching the following songs at LI this year. A special thanks to Cantor Ken Richmond and Shira Shazeer and their fabulous voices for these songs.
1. Sining Modeh ani beginning slowly and softly, then picking up speed and volume can be a wonderful way go generate a sense of energy for the morning service. At Minyan in the Grove, Modeh ani will be followed by a meditation.
מוֹדֶה אֲנִי לְפָנֶֽיךָ, מֶֽלֶךְ חַי וְקַיָּם
2. Elohia Neshama
אֱלֹהַי,נְשָׁמָה שֶׁנָּתַֽתָּ בִּי טְהוֹרָה הִיא
3. Ozi v' Zimrat Ya
עָזִּי וְזִמְרָת יָהּ וַיְהִי לִי לִישׁוּעָה
4. In this energetic version of Ashrei, the first to words, ashrei/yoshvei and the last word, selah, can be done in a call and response way.
אַשְׁרֵי יוֹשְׁבֵי בֵיתֶֽךָ, עוֹד יְהַלְלֽוּךָ סֶּֽלָה
