Today, on Yom Hazikaron, we honor and remember Israel’s fallen soldiers and victims of terror. Israel is a small nation with a huge impact on the world and on our lives. Before we celebrate its independence, we pause for a moment to reflect on those whom we’ve lost.

“Mi Sheberach” is a prayer for the soldiers of Israel’s Defense Forces that is sung to the tune of “El Eretz Tzvi” by Yehoram Gaon.

We at Six13 had the honor and privilege of singing this song with 2 great cantors, Chaim Dovid Berson of the Jewish Center and Dan Singer of Stephen Wise Free Synagogue. We hope it helps bring some extra meaning to an emotionally charged day.

May we realize the prophetic promise and see the day when nation will no longer fight against nation and will prepare for war no more.

Lyrics:

מי שברך אבותינו אברהם יצחק ויעקב הוא יברך את חיילי צבא הגנה לישראל העומדים על משמר ארצינו וערי אלוקינו מגבול הלבנון ועד מדבר מצרים ומן הים הגדול על לבוא הערבה ביבשה באויר ובים. ונאמר אמן.

Mi sheberach avoteinu, Avraham, Yitzchak, ve’Yaakov hu yevarech et chayalei tzva haganah l’yisrael ha’omdim al mishmar artzeinu v’arei elokeinu migvul halevanon ve’ad midbar mitzrayim umin hayam hagadol at levo ha’aravah bayabasha ba’avir uvayam. Venomar Amen.

May He who blessed our ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob bless the members of Israel’s defense forces who stand guard over our land and the cities of our G-d from the Lebanese border to the Egyptian desert and from the Mediterranean Sea to the approach of the Aravah, on land, in air, and at sea. And let us say: Amen.
