Remembering the songs.

I still remember Shabbat with Rabbi Rindenow in San Francisco, singing zmirot (Sabbath table hymns) on Friday nights and Saturday afternoons. Some of my favorites were "Mah Yedidut" and "Kah Ribon" and "Dror Yikra".

The refrain of "Mah Yedidut" contains the phrase "barburim, u'slav ve'dagim". "Barbur" isn't a really common word in Hebrew; Artscroll translates it as "fatted fowl". But I still think of that song every time I drive on Barbur Boulevard in Portland.
