קדוש (Kadosh: Holy)

Holy holy holy
is The L-rd G-d of Hosts
Who Was, and Is
And is to Come


קדוש קדוש קדוש
ה' אלהים צבאות

I'm not sure who this is singing, but it is beautiful!

Just out of curiosity, why do you not put the "o" in Lord or God? I've always wondered, but had never asked. Love you.

And oh my goodness, that is a beautiful song and she has a gorgeous voice. Thanks for sharing it.

Welcome back Olivia,
Hope you're on the mend.

(And Katelyn, I think Olivia has adopted the Anglo-Jewish practice of not writing the name of G-d in any form, literal obedience to the commandment to not take the L-rd's name in vain. The use of 'ה instead of the four letter name and saying 'Adonai' (literally: 'Lord')instead of pronouncing it is common practice.

I'm glad you're back on your feet, or at least back to the computer.

Our keyboards can switch from English to Hebrew letters, but I didn't know they come up backwards on the other side of the sea! Keep plugging at the Hebrew. It's not an easy language, but at least very logical. I learned it by simply being immersed in it. First being drafted into the IDF after only a year here, then family (wife, kids, inlaws).

Friends from Israel? Going to Texas from Israel is like jumping from the frying pan into the fire. At least they won't mind the heat! lol
